CBS is developing a new series based on the Hawaii Five-O franchise. The series comes from Criminal Minds executive producer/showrunner Ed Bernero.
The update will follow the structure of the original series, a procedural chronicling the workings of the fictional Hawaiian state police department, with Bernero noting that they “will try to keep as much of the original show as possible,” adding “I’m not trying to reinvent it.” In the original series, the unit was headed up by Steve McGarrett (Jack Lord). The new series will have McGarrett’s son Chris, as the head cop.
