Waves. Crime. Jack Lord. Yes, Hawaii Five-O is back—with a companion web series. Yesterday CBS.com debuted the original web series Hawaii: Undiscovered, inspired by the CBS Television’s remake of the 70s classic.
The eight episode series takes viewers around the island of Oahu, giving them a behind-the-scenes look at set locations and background on the island’s culture and history. The series is sponsored by Chevy Cruze and features a sweepstakes offering fans a chance to win a trip to Honolulu.
Hawaii: Undiscovered is hosted by Jim Brasher of Yahoo: Weekend Edition, who’ll be interviewing advisors and experts from Hawaii Five-O, including a Navy Seal advisor, the Hawaiian Language and Cultural advisor and the show’s location manager.
The first episode “Find Your Own Break” features Hawaii Five-O star Grace Park’s surfing instructor, Hans “The Man” Hedeman. Other adventures will include shark diving, ATV riding, parasailing and visits to Hawaii Five-O set locations.
“The island of Oahu has become the fifth character on Hawaii Five-O, and we’re excited to give fans a deeper look in to the culture and landscape that is a major part of the show,” said Joe Ferreira, SVP, Network Liaison and Original Content.
New Hawaii: Undiscovered webisodes will debut every Monday at 12:00 pm, PT, with the first two episodes available now on CBS.com.
