Hawaii Five-0: Remake Cast and Team Coming to Comic-Con

Hawaii Five-0Remakes of classic shows have not typically done very well and are cancelled after one season (or even sooner). If the buzz can be believed, the new Hawaii Five-0 may actually buck the trend.

CBS is going all out to promote the series and are even sending some of the cast and creative team to San Diego for Comic-Con. Here’s the official press release…

Panel Session with Series’ Stars and Creative Team on Friday, July 23 Kicks Off a Tsunami of H50 Celebrations

HOLLYWOOD, CA – July 1, 2010 — For the return of HAWAII FIVE-0, one of television’s most iconic series, CBS has assembled a team of genre giants: Executive Producers Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci (Star Trek) and Peter Lenkov (R.I.P.D.), Director Len Wiseman (Underworld), and stars Daniel Dae Kim (Lost) and Grace Park (Battlestar Galactica). They’ll be on site to celebrate all things H50 at this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego.


H50: ALOHA EARTH (10:15-11:15 AM, Room 6BCF) – Lost castaway found! Battlestar Cylon becomes human! Star Trek writers return from space! A supernatural force has drawn some of sci-fi’s giants back to Earth – and they’re all gathering on a beautiful and mysterious island in the Pacific. It’s HAWAII FIVE-0, a modern day reimagining of one of television’s most iconic classics. The epic series, one of the most anticipated new shows of the season, will explore the origins of the Five-0 team and build on an already rich mythology. Join Executive Producers Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci (Star Trek) and Peter M. Lenkov (24), Director Len Wiseman (Underworld), and stars Daniel Dae Kim (Lost) and Grace Park (Battlestar Galactica) for an exclusive sneak peek at the series and an in-depth discussion on how they plan to marry their genre sensibilities with a classic police procedural.

In addition to the H50 panel – where fans will have an opportunity to win three cast signed collector’s surfboards — there will be autograph signings by the cast and producers at the CBS Booth (# 4129), exclusive giveaways and a chance to win a vacation getaway to the filming location of H50 on the tropical and vibrant island of Oahu.
