“HAWAII FIVE-0” FILMING BEGINS MID JULY






ABC  EYEING OAHU FOR ANOTHER  SERIES



CBS’ Hawaii Five-0 series is scheduled to start filming on Oahu July 15 while it continues to look for studio space. The network also plans to hold it’s series premier – the pilot filmed on Oahu earlier this year – at a Sunset on the Beach premier in September…Hawaii crew have already been contacted about signing on to the series with pre productions expected to begin in mid June…Hawaii Five-0 stars Alex O’Loughlin as Five-0 head Steve McGarrett (below left) and Scott Caan as Danny “Danno” Williams…








Meanwhile, ABC is holding on to the Hawaii Film Studio while it decides whether or not to film its new series Off the Map on Oahu or in Puerto Rico where the pilot was filmed. ABC president Stephen McPherson told Reel News earlier this year that the network “definitely” wants to keep a presence in Hawaii which he later explained meant basing another series here after the departure of LOST…”We’ve had a great experience in Hawaii with LOST and see no reason why to end this relationship. Hawaii has a proven track record as a great place to film with excellent crew…If we can get everything worked out, we will do another series (on Oahu)”…ABC continues to rent the Hawaii FIlm Studio at least until they determine whether Off the Map is coming to Hawaii…



Off the Map is produced by Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers (Grey’s AnatomyPrivate Practice) and creator Jenna Bans (Grey’s Anatomy) below…






Here’s the story: “la ciudad de las estrellas” – the city of stars – is a tiny town in the South American jungle which has one understaffed, under-stocked medical clinic. That’s where idealistic young Dr. Lily Brenner just landed, along with fellow doctors Mina Minard and Manny Diaz. All of these young doctors are running away from personal demons, but they aren’t the only ones with emotional baggage. Take the legendary and enigmatic Ben Keeton, who was the youngest Chief of Surgery at UCLA. He walked away from it all to found the clinic. Together with his right-hand doctor, Otis Cole, he’ll teach these newcomers how to save lives in the most challenging environment they’ve ever worked in…In this ensemble drama, five doctors who have lost their way will go to the ends of the earth to try to remember the reasons why they wanted to become doctors in the first place…






Off the Map stars Martin Henderson as Ben Keeton, Caroline Dhavernas as Lily Brenner, Enrique Murciano as Manny Diaz, Mamie Gummer as Mina Minard, Jason George as Otis Cole, Valerie Cruz as Zita (Zee) and Jose Julian as Charlie…

  1. Alex O’Loughlin is set to become Holllywood’s next big “A” Lister. He has talent, charisma, and he is gorgeous, caring…I’ve studied his career and him, for over 4 years. He is a bonified “good guy” and deserves the best. He will make Hawaii Five O a “must see”…
