CBS Orders Pilot for New Hawaii Five-O

Hawaii Five-O (CBS)

Variety is reporting that CBS has committed to a pilot for an updated version of its iconic crime drama series Hawaii Five-O. Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (Fringe) will supervise the script.

CBS has long wanted to reboot the series, which originally aired on the network for 12 seasons (from 1968 through 1980). In August 2008 it was widely reported that an updated version of the series was in the works for CBS, with the son of Steve McGarrett as the new head of elite state police unit, but it was not picked up. No information about the direction the new pilot will take was reported.

The first seven seasons of the series are available on DVD from Mysteries on TV: Hawaii Five-O. Fancast has a rotating and somewhat random selection of episodes from the series available to view online. Watch "One for the Money" (Season 2, Episode 19) below:
