A contemporary take on the classic series about a new elite task force. Detective Steve McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) returns to Oahu to investigate his father’s murder and stays after Hawaii’s governor persuades him to head up the new team. Joining McGarrett is Detective Danny 'Danno' Williams (Scott Caan), who is committed to keeping the Islands safe for his daughter; and Chin Ho Kelly (Daniel Dae Kim), an ex-detective wrongly accused of corruption and relegated to a federal security patrol. Chin’s cousin, Kono (Grace Park), is a beautiful and fearless native, fresh out of the academy and eager to establish herself among the department’s elite. McGarrett vows to bring closure to his father’s case while the state’s new Five-O unit is determined to eliminate the seedy elements from the 50th state.
Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (Fringe, Star Trek) are executive producers. Previous attempts to remake the show failed (Gary Busey starred in a 1997 pilot that was never broadcast) but this looks fun and I have faith in Kurtzman/Orci. Plus it's got Jin! Coming this fall on CBS.
