1 min read

CBS has said OK to an updated version of the famous cop series set in Hawaii.

Back in October, it was announced that Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci were working on a remake of the classic Hawaii Five-O series for CBS, teaming with CSI:New York Producer Peter Lenkov.

011809HawaiiFiveOToday word comes that Hawaii Five-O is a go. Kurtzman, Orci and Lenkov will all be executive producers on the updated version of the show which may center on Steve McGarrett’s son Chris, who succeeded his father as head of the branch of the Hawaiian State Police.

The original Hawaii Five-O was centered on an elite branch of the Hawaii State Police headed by Steve McGarrett (Jack Lord) and answerable only to Governor Paul Jameson, played by Richard Denning.

The show ran from 1968-1980 and was instantly identifiable by its opening sequence and music (composed by Morton Stevens) and “Book ’em, Danno,” a phrase often used at the end of an episode when it was time to arrest the bad guy(s). “Danno” was Danny “Danno” Williams, played by James MacArthur.
