CBS has ordered four new series including its remake of “Hawaii 5-0”. In the pilot William Sadler plays Alex O’Loughlin’s dad. On the official Bill Board, William wrote recently that he won’t be a regular on the show “I play Alex’s dad so I may come back from time to time but I won’t be booking any Dannos on a regular basis. I wish it were otherwise but there you have it.”
The pilot episode for the show was filmed on Oahu in March. “Hawaii 5-0” will premiere this fall.
