Jay Hernandez (BAD MOMS) will be starring in the pilot for CBS’ reboot of MAGNUM PI which is executive produced by YOMYOMF Founder Justin Lin who is also set to direct the pilot in Hawaii. From Entertainment Weekly:
Like the original 1980s crime drama, the pilot is set in Hawaii with Hernandez assuming the role of Thomas Magnum. In this incarnation, he’s a decorated ex-Navy SEAL who returns home from Afghanistan (instead of Vietnam) and uses his military skills as a private investigator. Hernandez’s TV credits include Six Degrees, Gang Related, and Nashville, and he had a recurring role earlier this season on Scandal. His feature film resume boasts Hostel, Suicide Squad and Bright.
Peter Lenkov and Eric Guggenheim (Hawaii Five-0) are writing and executive producing the pilot, while Justin Lin (The Fast and The Furious) is directing.
