The landmark classic series, which received two Emmy® Awards and more than 20 nominations, will make waves this holiday season when HAWAII FIVE-O: THE COMPLETE SERIES arrives on December 3 from CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Media Distribution. The predecessor to CBS’s current hit show of the same name, HAWAII FIVE-O: THE COMPLETE SERIES features Jack Lord in his celebrated role as Detective Steve McGarrett. The show has become an American classic as one of the longest-running crime shows in television history.
HAWAII FIVE-O: THE COMPLETE SERIES features all 12 seasons, including the debut of the remastered tenth season, in a sleek, collectible package featuring cast photos and spectacular images of Hawaii’s stunning landscape. The 73-disc set is filled with special features including the behind-the-scenes documentary, Hawaii Now: “Hawaii Five-O” Vintage Documentary, which originally aired on PBS in Hawaii in 1971. This archival footage includes an interview with Lord; in addition, Executive Producer Leonard Freeman, Supervising Producer Robert Sweeney, Location Producer William Finnegan and Director Paul Stanley provide the inside scoop on the process of filming each episode from set design and wardrobe to casting Lord in the role of Detective Steve McGarrett. The collection is also packed with never-before-seen content including “Hawaii Five-O” syndication sales reel and Lord’s classic 1969 appearance on “The Mike Douglas Show.”
Filmed entirely on location in Hawaii, the show followed Steve McGarrett (Lord), head of an elite state police unit investigating “organized crime, murder, assassination attempts, foreign agents, felonies of every type.” James MacArthur played his second-in-command, Danny ("Danno") Williams, with local actors playing members of the Five-O team.
