CBS Greenlights 'Hawaii Five-O' Remake

January 17, 2010 |By: Daniel

CBS has officially booked a remake of 'Hawaii Five-O.'

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the network has greenlit an updated version of the crime procedural, which originally ran on the Eye network from 1968-1980.

Writers Alex Kurtzman (credits include both 'Transformers' movies, as well as Fox's 'Fringe') and Roberto Orci ('Eagle Eye,' 'The Proposal,' 'Fringe') will team with 'CSI: NY' executive producer Peter Lenkov to pen the script.

CBS and CBS Studios, which own the rights to 'Five-O,' originally started developing the show last season, with 'Criminal Minds' exec producer Ed Bernero at the helm.

No word yet on casting.

As for the original 'Five-O,' it starred the late Jack Lord as Det. Steve McGarret, leader of an elite branch of the Hawaii State Police that was answerable only to the governor.

The show was perhaps most famous for the dialog Lord closed every show out with, instructing his No. 2, "Book 'em, Danno."

If they bring this back WITHOUT the song, they suck.

AMEN

I won't even be able to watch it if they don't have The Song---the EXACT song. Not some tricked-out techno version (and CERTAINLY not some Rap or Reggae Rap version)

They probably will - it seems the "hip" thing nowadays is to begin a show with no opening credits whatsoever.

Agreed.

I've had the Hawaii Five O ringtone on my phone for the last 2 years. :banana:

That is too cool! My dad used to watch the show and I can still remember the song like it was yesterday.
