Welcome to our latest exclusive wikiDeeks podcast. We have been truly humbled to be able to speak with so many of the people who help create NCIS: Los Angeles. Last week, with a little help from Eric Christian Olsen, we were thrilled to get a chance to pick the brain of executive producer, writer and director Frank Military, who’s been responsible for so many classic Deeks and Densi moments.
Our editor Karen P. talked to Frank about which character he was initially drawn to and which is “the most awesome,” what Eric Christian Olsen and Daniela Ruah bring to their roles, the showrunners’ long-term efforts to keep Densi interesting, whether his work should really be described as dark, how he approached writing “Descent” and filming the waterboarding scene in “Spoils of War,” the reasons behind Michelle Hanna’s death, how a wayward camel almost derailed his first NCIS:LA directorial attempt, and how his directorial style has evolved over time.
Hearing how busy Frank is makes us all the more grateful that he took time out of his busy schedule to talk to us. Thanks Frank!
