CRIMINAL MINDS EXECUTIVE PRODUCER ED BERNERO'S NEW PROJECT:
Criminal Minds: Edward Allen Bernero, Executive Producer of Criminal Minds, has announced his newest project.
CBS is saying aloha to a new installment of "Hawaii Five-O."
The new take on the popular crime drama, which aired on CBS from 1968 to 1980, is being developed by Ed Bernero, executive producer and showrunner of "Criminal Minds." He is such a big "Hawaii Five-O" fan that he has the Ventures' iconic theme song from the show as his ringtone.
Bernero is writing the project, which he describes as "'Hawaii Five-O' 2.0."
Like the original series, it chronicles the workings of the fictional Hawaiian state police department. In the original, the unit was headed by Steve McGarrett, played by Jack Lord. In the new series, McGarrett's son Chris will be the top cop.
