The plan apparently is to put the focus on the titular character’s daughter in a series which would serve as a follow-up of sorts to the original. John Rogers (The Librarians, Transformers) is writing the script and will executive produce with Eva Longoria, Ben Spector and Jennifer Court. There’s currently no word on when we might see it on the small screen.
However, this new take on Magnum P.I. is describe as featuring the same, “fun, high-action of the original as Magnum’s daughter, Lily “Tommy” Magnum returns to Hawaii to take up the mantle of her father’s PI firm. She and her tribe of friends mix tropical beaches with the seedy underbelly of international crime and modern espionage, even as she tries to unravel the mystery of the blown spy operation that ended her career in Navy Intelligence.
This one is either going to be great or absolutely terrible, but the original Magnum P.I. starring Tom Selleck was certainly a hit after running on CBS between 1980 to 1988.
