Episode preview for a new CBS drama Hawaii Five-O, premiering Monday, Sept. 20. Episode is titled as a "Pilot ".
Upon returning to Hawaii to investigate his father's murder, decorated Naval officer Steve McGarrett is recruited by the Governor to head up an elite new police task force ? his rules, her backing, no red tape. Their first case involves tracking a weapons dealer connected to McGarrett's father's murder, on the series premiere of HAWAII FIVE-0.
HAWAII FIVE-0 is a contemporary take on the classic series about a new elite federalized task force whose mission is to wipe out the crime that washes up on the Islands' sun-drenched beaches. Detective Steve McGarrett, a decorated Naval officer-turned-cop, returns to Oahu to investigate his father's murder and stays after Hawaii's Governor persuades him to head up the new team with full blanket authority to hunt down the biggest "game" in town. Joining McGarrett is Detective Danny "Danno" Williams, a newly relocated ex-New Jersey cop ? a working man in paradise who prefers skyscrapers to the coastline ? but who's committed to keeping the Islands safe for his 8-year-old daughter; and Chin Ho Kelly, an ex-Honolulu Police Detective, and former prot?g? of McGarrett's father, wrongly accused of corruption and relegated to a federal security patrol. Chin's cousin, Kono, is a beautiful and fearless native, fresh out of the academy and eager to establish herself among the department's elite. McGarrett, repairing his relationship with his estranged sister Mary Ann, vows to bring closure to their father's case. The state's brash new FIVE-0 unit, who may spar and jest among themselves, is determined to eliminate seedy elements from the 50th state. Peter Lenkov, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are executive producers for CBS Television Studios.
