Let’s get retro. It’s been 29 years since Hawaii Five-O wrapped for CBS, and that’s 29 years too long. CBS recently announced that it will partner writing wunderkids Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Star Trek, TV’s Fringe) with CBS producer Peter Lenkov (CSI: NY, 24, The District) to reboot the cop show. Lenkov will write the pilot, under strict supervision from Orci and Kurtzman, and the trio will executive-ly produce the show should it be picked up.

The original series (created by Leonard Freeman) was filmed its 12-year run on location in Hawaii. If the show gets picked up, we can probably expect the same, due to beautiful vistas and equally beautiful tax breaks.

We’ll see what comes of this. With this team at the conceptual helm, I’m pretty confident that we’ll be seeing a newer, sexier version of Hawaii Five-O coming to CBS in no time at all. What do you think?
