New logo, ride, and Rolex revealed on set of 'Magnum P.I.' reboot

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The filming for the reboot of the popular 80s television series Magnum P.I. started this week on Oahu.

The shooting location of the pilot episode has not been disclosed, but there are few things we have learned about the new CBS series.

Posting from Oahu, executive producer Peter Lenkov revealed on Twitter that the new show will once again feature a Ferrari.

In the new version of the show, the license plate of the iconic car has been changed to "Robin 2" from "Robin 1".

Also on Twitter this week, Lenkov posted a photo of what appears to be the show's new logo, which includes an image of Diamond Head at sunset. 

The reboot will follow Thomas Magnum (Jay Hernandez), 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.

Lenkov also revealed on Twitter that he's helping with the costuming of the new show — by lending his personal Rolex watch to the role of Magnum. 

In the original run of the show, Tom Selleck wore a Rolex Oyster Perpetual GMT Master for seasons 4-8. 

Fun Fact: IMBD says the original show was set in Hawaii partly because CBS did not want to close its Hawaii production offices when the original "Hawaii Five-0" (1968) ceased production in 1980.

"Magnum P.I." started production that year and contains occasional references to Steve McGarrett and "Five-0," although McGarrett was never shown. Originally, "Magnum P.I." was to based out of California.
