Could the phrase, “Book ’em, Danno” be returning to CBS? It’s possible.
The network is considering a remake of the classic 1970s detective drama HAWAII FIVE-0, and has ordered a pilot to be produced.
The executive producer of CSI: NY would also helm this pilot episode. Other than that, there aren’t many details about what would and what wouldn’t change in the remake.
The original version featured the late Jack Lord as Steve McGarrett, and its legendary theme music is still one of the most recognizable in television history. It premiered in 1968 and left the air in 1980. Years later, CBS returned to the islands with MAGNUM, P.I..
We’ll keep you posted if it looks like FIVE-0 will make it to the schedule!
