Like the swallows to Capistrano, the beloved Cote de Pablo is returning to CBS — and we’ve got your first look at the NCIS alum in The Dovekeepers. The video below shows de Pablo on the set of the Eye Network’s miniseries, an adaptation of Alice Hoffman’s historical novel about four women in ancient Israel whose lives intersect at the siege of Masada. That real-life event occurred in 70 C.E. (aka A.D.), when 900 Jews who’d been forced out of Jerusalem by the Romans held out for months against Roman troops at a mountain fortress in the Judean desert. The Actress Formerly Known as Ziva plays Shirah, a “sensual, mysterious and fiercely independent single mother” whom many call the “Witch of Moab” because she practices forbidden magic. The four-hour event series is executive produced by Roma Downey and Mark Burnett (The Bible) and co-stars Rachel Brosnahan (House of Cards), Kathryn Prescott (Finding Carter) and Diego Boneta (Pretty Little Liars). The Dovekeepers will air on CBS in 2015. Press PLAY to see de Pablo in action and get a hint of what’s to come. Source: TV Line
“We’ve been saying it all along — we’re thrilled that this Dovekeepers project has come up for her,” NCIS showrunner Gary Glasberg told TVLine following his appearance at the Television Critics Assoc. summer press tour, where he was promoting the spin-off NCIS; New Orleans.
De Pablo’s miniseries gig — about four women in ancient Israel whose lives intersect at the siege of Masada — “is unique and different,” he noted. “I’m really pleased for her. It’s a great thing.”
So, once and for all, there’s no bad blood between boss and his onetime star? Meaning, the door is ostensibly open for de Pablo to reprise her NCIS role someday, if only for an episode? “There’s no bad blood,” Glasberg answered. “I promise you there’s no bad blood.” (With reporting by Vlada Gelman)

She’ll topline the four-hour event series from Roma Downey and Mark Burnett set for 2015.
Cote de Pablo is returning to CBS.
The NCIS alum has been cast to star in the network’s 2015 miniseries The Dovekeepers, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
From Roma Downey and Mark Burnett (The Bible, Survivor)the four-hour miniseries is based on Alice Hoffman‘s historical novel The Dovekeepers. The story centers on four women whose lives intersect in a fight for survival at the siege of Masada. Set in ancient Israel, The Dovekeepers is based on the true events at Masada in 70 C.E. After being forced out of their home in Jerusalem by the Romans, 900 Jews were ensconced in a fortress at Masada, a mountain in the Judean desert. Besieged at Masada, the Jews held out for months against the vast Roman armies. The mini will recount the unfolding events from the perspective of four women who arrive at Masada independently and with unique backstories, but who share a common bond for survival.
De Pablo will play Shirah, one of the four women. The character is a sensual, mysterious and fiercely independent single mother with uncanny insights and a quiet and mysterious power. She’s derided by many as the “Witch of Moab,” as she covertly practices forbidden ancient rites of magic and is keenly knowledgeable about herbal remedies. However, those in need don’t hesitate to approach her for her help and generosity of spirit.
“Her talent, strength and beauty will light up the screen in the important role of Shirah,” Downey said of de Pablo.
The casting marks a return to the network for de Pablo, who famously exited CBS’ — and TV’s — top drama NCIS last season. The casting comes a year and six days after she announced her departure from the series after eight seasons. CBS brass said they did everything they could to keep the actress on the series but she “decided she didn’t want to do the show.” De Pablo is repped by Paradigm, Management 360 and attorneys Melanie Cook and Jamie Asifi.
Dovekeepers, picked up straight to series in December, marks the first project to come from CBS Entertainment and CBS Television Studios’ recently announced limited series and event programming unit under the newly hired Stacy Mandelberg. It will be distributed worldwide by CBS Studios International. The mini is a co-production between CBS Television Studios and LightWorkers Media. Downey and Burnett will exec produce. Mandelberg, vp limited series and event programming, will oversee production. Frank Siracusa, John Weber and Yves Simoneau also exec produce, with the latter on board to direct. Ann Peacock adapted the novel for CBS.
The cast and crew of “The 33,” a film about the dramatic 2010 rescue of 33 men from a mine in northern Chile, said goodbye to the Andean nation as the phase of postproduction in Canada begins.
“It’s been a great experience and we think we have a great film,” producer Edward McGurn said in a statement to the press.
The movie, directed by Mexico’s Patricia Riggen (“The Same Moon”), tells the story of the mining accident that in 2010 kept the whole world in suspense: 33 miners were buried for almost 70 days by a cave-in down the San Jose Mine in the northern part of the country.
After a salt mine in Colombia was used to shoot scenes of the collapsed Chilean mineshaft, the cast, headed by Antonio Banderas in the role of the miners’ leader Mario Sepulveda, went to the arid north of this long, narrow country to shoot the outdoor scenes.
Actors like Juliette Binoche, James Brolin, Kate del Castillo, Federico Luppi and Mario Casas recreated in Copiapo, in the northern Chilean region of Atacama, what happened at Esperanza Camp, where a colorful, chaotic and at times solemn human landscape became engraved in the world’s memory.
The film is due for release at the end of this year. EFE

EXCLUSIVE: In what will be her first acting role since leaving network TV’s most-watched series NCIS, Cote De Pablo has been cast in The 33, the feature film based on the 2010 rescue of 33 Chilean miners after being trapped 69 days in the Copiapo gold and copper mine more than half an mile below the earth’s surface. Antonio Banderas, Juliette Binoche and Rodrigo Santoro are among those already aboard the ensemble cast of the pic, which is now in production in Chile and Colombia with Patricia Riggen directing. The script is from Craig Borten (Dallas Buyers Club) and Michael Thomas.
De Pablo, who was born in Chile and whose mother still lives there, will play a wife of one of the trapped miners, who became international stars following their dramatic rescue that played out live worldwide. Her scenes will be shot in Chile’s Atacama Desert near where the actual event, and the subsequent rescue efforts took place. She is repped by Paradigm.
It was a shocker when De Pablo departed NCIS in July after contract negotiations with CBS and producer CBS TV Studios went south ahead of the series’ current 11th season. She had been the last among the cast to sign their deal, and the network said the decision to exit was hers. She returned for enough shows this season to finish out the storyline of her character Ziva David, which she had played for eight years. CBS chief Leslie Moonves later said of the failed talks: “We offered Cote de Pablo a lot of money — and then we offered even more money. We didn’t want to lose her.”
Mike Medavoy is producing The 33 with Robert Katz and Edward McGurn. Carlos Eugenio Lavin, Leopoldo Enriquez and Alan Zhang are executive producing.
