CBS’ Hawaii Five-0 took the iconic police procedural drama set in Hawaii, and updated the show’s brand appeal with a new generation of fast-paced, high-action, crime-fighting quartet. Tomorrow at noon in the House Chamber, the State Legislature will honor CBS representatives, the show’s producers, cast, and crew for the global success of its first season…

 

 

Honorees will include CBS’ senior vice president of Current Programming Glenn Geller, executive producer Peter Lenkov, co-executive producer Paul Zbyszewski, co-executive producer and director Brad Turner, producer and co-unit production manager Jeff Downer, and cast members Alex O’Loughlin (Steve McGarrett) and Daniel Dae Kim (Chin Ho Kelly)…

At the 37th People’s Choice Awards on in January 5, Hawaii Five-0 won “Favorite New TV Drama”…

 

 

Shot entirely in Hawaii, the series is seen in more than  200 international markets.
