CBS picked up a remake of the classic cop show "Hawaii Five-O," reports The Hollywood Reporter.
The series will be some major talent behind it: Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci and "CSI: NY" executive producer Peter Lenkov.
Says the article, "Kurtzman and Orci, co-creators/exec producers of Fox’s sophomore drama ‘Fringe,’ know a thing or two about reinvigorating TV series: They recently penned the J.J. Abrams-directed blockbuster ‘Star Trek.’ Their feature writing credits also include the two ‘Transformers’ movies and ‘Mission: Impossible III.’ "
The original aired on CBS from 1968-80.
