‘Magnum P.I.’ reboot to continue CBS’s descent into dated Hawaiin procedurals

The team behind the Hawaii Five-0 and MacGyver is rehashing another old procedural CBS will chow down on like candy. THR reports that the showrunner for those series, Peter Lenkov, and Eric Guggenheim (Hawaii Five-0) are now developing a reboot of Magnum P.I., the ’80s series that saw Tom Selleck as an ex-Navy SEAL who starts doing strangely elaborate private detective work in Hawaii. CBS has already given “a sizable pilot-production commitment” to the series, and given that the network has had Selleck on its payroll for seven years with Blue Bloods, it’s already expected the original mustache will at least cameo in this new take.

This isn’t exactly a new idea, though: ABC was just last year developing a sequel to focus on Magnum’s daughter, and more than a decade ago, Dodgeball and Central Intelligence writer-director Rawson Marshall Thurber was attached to give the series a feature film successor. But if ever there were finally a chance for Magnum to investigate a case involving Young Sheldon…
