From The Hollywood Reporter

'Hawaii Five-O' 2.0 set up at CBS
'Criminal Minds' showrunner in for new take on franchise

By Nellie Andreeva

Aug 12, 2008, 01:00 AM ET

"Hawaii Five-O"
CBS is saying aloha to a new installment of the "Hawaii Five-O" franchise from "Criminal Minds" exec producer/showrunner Ed Bernero.

The new take on the popular crime drama, which aired on CBS from 1968-80, is one of three projects Bernero has in the works, along with "Washington Field," which is being done in cooperation with the FBI, and a fugitive apprehension drama.

Bernero is such a big "Hawaii Five-O" fan that he has the iconic theme song from the show as his ringtone. He said he didn't even hesitate when execs at CBS Par TV, where he has an overall deal, approached him with the idea for a new incarnation of the classic Leonard Freeman cop series.

Bernero is writing the project, which he describes as " 'Hawaii Five-O' 2.0."

Like the original series, it is a procedural chronicling the workings of the fictional Hawaiian state police department. In the original, the unit was headed by Steve McGarrett, played by Jack Lord. In the new series, McGarrett's son Chris will be the top cop.

While the characters, storytelling and pacing will be updated, "we will try to keep as much of the original show as possible," Bernero said. "I'm not trying to reinvent it."

The famous opening music will be back but may also get a face-lift, much in the vein of the theme from the 1966-73 series "Mission: Impossible," which was rearranged for the 1990s movie franchise.

As for the staple "Book 'em, Danno" closing line, there will be a version of it in the new installment, Bernero said.

"Five-O," which would be filmed in Hawaii, is the second classic cop series that CBS is looking to bring back. The network also is developing an updated "Streets of San Francisco," penned by Sheldon Turner.

The two would give CBS more procedurals in distinct locales to complement its "CSI" series set in Las Vegas, Miami and New York.

Like several other classic cop series such as "Starsky & Hutch" and "Miami Vice," which have made the leap to the big screen, there has been an attempt to make a "Five-0" feature, but the project, set at Warner Bros., has been dormant for a while.

"Washington Field," also set up at CBS, is named after FBI's Washington Field Office that houses the National Capital Response Squad, an unit comprising elite experts in different areas who travel around the world, responding to events that concern the U.S. national interest.

"If the police need help, they call them," said Bernero, who is penning the project with brothers Jim and Tim Clemente. "It's almost like 'The A-Team,' but it's real."

Jim Clemente, an FBI profiler, has written an episode of "Criminal Minds." Tim Clemente is a former terrorism expert on NCRS.

FBI is opening its doors to "Washington Field." For example, the show would be able to film in the agencies' facilities and use the "from the files of the FBI" logo.

The third project UTA-repped Bernero has in the works at CBS Par TV centers on the FBI's fugitive apprehension unit.

"The main character is a woman who is the daughter of a fugitive, so she has an unique eye to how they run and hide," Bernero said.

The idea was pitched to him by novelist Joseph Finder and his brother Henry, New Yorker editorial director. The two will pen the script with Bernero supervising.

Man, this scares me.

"The famous opening music will be back but may also get a face-lift, much in the vein of the theme from the 1966-73 series "Mission: Impossible," which was rearranged for the 1990s movie franchise."


Lemme Guess.....Some Hip Hop / electronica version of the song, done by, let's see MOBY or the Chemical Brothers. Predictable........zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz


If they were smart, they'd use "Martini 5-0" by the Blue Hawaiians somewhere in the series as a variation of the theme song recurring throughout the show.


I'm weary of someone f*ckin' with Hawaii 5-0 as a tv show, but, I guess it will be good for the Hawaii economy to be filming there.

We can all just hope for the best. At least it is not being done as a campy crappy comedy like what they did to poor old Starsky and Hutch. Remakes usually suck although I thought the Battlestar Galactica 2.0 wasn't so bad for the first couple of seasons.

Tikiyaki-I like your picks for doing a new version of the theme song.

In case anyone cares my ringtone is the Hawaii Five O theme. And if someone from CBS checks this out. I'm to help produce on the 2.0 version!

Funny, I LOVED the Starsky and Hutch movie.

I prefer that to updating it and taking it out of the 70's. I like that they kept it in the 70's, and added a little humor to it.

Sneakyjack, if you are the guy they're talking about in the article, I hope you do it justice. It was such a cool show.

Yes! That blew me away the first time I heard it!

I'm also a little wary of any attempt to re-invent 5-O, but I'll wait to pass judgment on it until I see it.

Dittos on 'Martini 5-0', but only if the show lives up to the tune.

Maybe I'll get into some background scenes like I managed in the original...
But meeting 'Chis' will never be like shaking hands and talking with Lord/McGarrett!

Double Chin Ho!

Bottom line...I'll watch it once, if its cool, I'll keep watching...if not, then I won't.

I find the best thing for me to do is not to compare it to the original. Like Oceans 11.....It's an Okay movie on its own, but you can't compare it to the original...its completely different...apples and oranges.

The question is, just like Oceans 11, why do they need to tag the name on to it? Can't they just make a new Hawaii series that borrows the concept without making it "Hawaii five-0 2.0"?

Besides, if I wanted to see a hawaii five-0 wanna-be I'd just watch David Caruso do his best Jack Lord imitation on csi miami.

The problem for me is, it will lack the one thing I love about hawaii five-0....the time setting. I think a large part of why we all watch it is for the old cars, the scenic shots, the cool bars, the clothes, and the hotels. Its a chance to see hawaii in the time setting we enjoy and wish was still around. Its a chance to see hotels we have mugs for, postcards come to life, and people wearing the fashion we search for in thrift stores. The new show cannot possibly give us that.

While I hope for the best, I won't lose any sleep over it.

Very true since this one will not be set in the same time period. Hawaii Five-0 was set in the 70s, but if you're looking for a new show that manages to truly capture the cool late 50s-early 60s vibe, watch Mad Men. They get it all correct: the clothes, the language, the sexism, the hairstyles, the furniture, and the constant drinking and smoking. Ah, the good ol' days...

I couldnt have said it better myself. When they are driving around im just scanning the backround scenery to catch a glimpse of a familiar place before it was developed or in rare occasions still preserved. That show transports me back to a time that i only wish i could have seen and been in. Any day prior to today meant less "Progress" and more Aloha.

Erichtroudt and Mongoloid, I'm in total agreement with you both.

I love seeing the the stuff on DVD and seeing the parts of Oahu that I recognize, 40 years earlier.

In season 1, there is even a scene where McGarrett goes to Burbank to find someone and I can see what is now the Chandler Bike path, only back then it was still train tracks.

The real appeal is indeed, the Hawaii of the 60's and 70's.

Also great is how the youth "counter culture" was almost always the bad guys in the old series. Hearing Gavin McCleod (Capt Stubing from the Love Boat) as a jive talkin, drug pushin thug (Big Chicken) in 5-0 is just Too funny. Plus that opening sequence is C L A S S I C !!!

It was the golden age of Hawaii, the Hawaii we celebrate at our tiki events. So this new version will probably not appeal to us.

I still like seeing Hawaii on TV tho, so it may still be cool to check out.

CBS already has a rip off of Hawaii Five O. CSI Miami and that Jack Lord wannabe David Caruso. Jack Lord's hair had more talent than "Horatio"

BTW... JACK LORD'S HAIR was one of the best band names I ever heard.

I am very doubtful about any new series that hopes to draw from the original.
The exception for me is Battlestar Galactica. They shouldn't have named it that, it is so much better than the original.

Mad Men absolutely sucks. I started watching for the reasons listed above, I liked everything except the characters. They should all go away. Maybe a lawn dart to the head, however they used to die back then...
