Tom Selleck hit drama Magnum P.I. is set for another attempted remake.
The series originally ran from 1980-1988 for eight seasons and 158 episodes.
Peter Lenkov (Hawaii Five-O, MacGyver reboots) will serve as the writer and executive producer which has a pilot production commitment at CBS.
The new version follows Thomas Magnum, a decorated ex-Navy SEAL who returns home to Hawaii from Afghanistan and becomes a private investigator.
A previous sequel surrounding Magnum’s daughter who returns to Hawaii did not move beyond development.
