CBS adds '5-0' to fall schedule

Advertiser Staff

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that CBS has picked up the remake of "Hawaii 5-0" as part of its new fall schedule.

The show based on the CBS hit that aired from 1968 to 1980 features Alex O'Loughlin as Steve McGarrett and "Lost" cast member Daniel Dae Kim as Chin Ho Kelly.

The cast also includes Taryn Manning, Grace Park and Scott Caan.

"The original 'Hawaii 5-0' was a landmark television program. It was the first network series to be filmed entirely on location here and was vital to building Hawaii's film industry," Honolulu Mayor Mufi Hannemann said in a statement. "The City and County of Honolulu pulled out all the stops to assist with the making of the new pilot episode because a network television series translates into significant economic development for Hawaii. We look forward to supporting the production as it goes forward into series."
