Magnum P.I. reboot gets traditional Hawaiian blessing

HAWAII (HawaiiNewsNow) - The set location for the reboot of the popular 80s television series Magnum P.I., was given a traditional Hawaiian blessing Monday morning.

The reboot will follow Thomas Magnum, a highly ranked Navy SEAL who left the military to become a private investigator. He and his team of fellow military veterans and agent friends help him take on the cases no one else will for the people who have nowhere else to turn.

The writer and producer behind the CBS reboot of "Hawaii Five-0", Peter Lenkov, is also behind the Magnum PI reboot. Tom Selleck played Magnum in the original series.

The reboot, like the original, is set on Oahu.
