CBS has found their new Magnum PI. Deadline reports Jay Hernandez will play the lead in the network’s series reboot pilot.
The original Magnum PI 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.
From Justin Lin and Peter Lenkov, the Magnum PI reboot pilot will star Hernandez as “Thomas Magnum, a decorated ex-Navy SEAL who, upon returning home from Afghanistan, repurposes his military skills to become a private investigator.”
