Amy Hill is coming to CBS. Deadline reports the Crazy Ex-Girlfriend star will recur on the network’s upcoming Magnum PI reboot.
As reported earlier, CBS has ordered a reboot of the 1980s action drama. The original starred Tom Selleck as Thomas Magnum, a private investigator who lives in Hawaii. The cast also included John Hillerman, Roger E. Mosley, and Larry Manetti. The show ran on CBS from 1980 to 1988.
The new Magnum PI will star Jay Hernandez as Thomas Magnum, “a decorated ex-Navy SEAL who, upon returning home from Afghanistan, repurposes his military skills to become a private investigator.” Hill will be playing “the charming and irreverent Kumu, the cultural curator and de facto “house mom” of Robin’s Nest.”
The CBS reboot also stars Perdita Weeks.
