NBC’s Knight Rider series will film two days on Oahu – Oct. 25 and 26 – all on the North Shore and primarily at the Turtle Bay Resort where cast and the Los Angeles crew will be staying.

KITT is not making the Hawaii trip. Only two Knight Rider cast will be in Hawaii,  star Justin Bruening and Deanna Russo. The episode being shot here is called Knight to King Pawn. Russo’s character comes to Hawaii to get away from a personal tragedy back home. The majority of crew will be from Oahu. Preproduction begins Monday…
