NEW YORK (HawaiiNewsNow) - To make way for the new Hawaii Five-0, CBS is moving one of its top shows. Starting this fall Five-0 will take over the Monday night slot now held by CSI Miami.
The original show aired from 1968 to 1980. It was a much different era from today, but some parts of the show you just can't replace, like the unmistakable theme song for Hawaii Five-0.
"There are a lot of reasons to remake it and we brought it into the contemporary age," said Alex O'Loughlin, who plays Detective Steve McGarrett.
The show promises to have the three C's of successful show... crime, comedy and characters. Of course that includes the classic line "Book'em Danno."
The production comes packed with a big boost to the economy. Not only does it bring nationwide exposure but also money. It could pull in as much as the show Lost which generated $131 million a year for the state. The Five-0 cast is happy to be working Hawaii.
"It's a beautiful place there could be a lot worse places we can be. I think we're all excited to get to spend time out there and shoot a show out there and use that exterior as much as we can. I think it makes the show look beautiful," said Scott Caan, as Detective Danny "Danno" Williams.
"It's a beautiful part of the world," added O'Loughlin.
"To know we are all going to be part of this team together, this elite federal task force and its going to be really fun to see it all play out," said Grace Park, who plays Kono.
Look for all the action Monday nights this fall at 9:00.
