Fans will see 'Hawaii Five-0' premiere on Waikiki Beach

Better secure your spot on Queen's Beach now, because CBS plans to give Hawaii fans a special advance screening of the season two premiere of "Hawaii Five-0" during a Sunset on the Beach event, the network told the Star-Advertiser today.

 
The event will be held on Sept. 10 and all the main cast members — Alex O'Loughlin, Scott Caan, Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park — will be on hand for a red-carpet arrival, CBS said. Also expected are cast newcomers Terry O'Quinn and Tom Sizemore as well as season one regular Masi Oka. 
 
The rest of the nation will not get to see the episode until the network premiere on Sept. 19. "Five-0" airs locally at 9 p.m. Mondays on KGMB.
 
CBS will also be celebrating the release of season one DVD collection.
 
The screening time and schedule of entertainment has not been set yet, CBS said. 
 
Police estimated more than 5,000 people jammed the beach last year when the network premiered its rebooted version of the beloved series, which originally aired from 1968 to 1980. The turnout was so large and the adoration so great, that cast members were stunned. 
 
"When you have hundreds of people lining up on the beach and some all the way back to the water's edge, you truly have standing room only," said Walea Constantinau, the Honolulu Film Office commissioner.
 
The red-carpet arrival at the first Sunset on the Beach was beamed across the country to several hundred CBS affiliates and interest was extremely high. The series did not show on network TV until a week later.
 
But CBS knows how important "Five-0" is to local fans, Constantinau said.
 
"This show is so close to the islands and the island people feel so close to it, that it is a way for the creators and CBS to give back in the place where it is filmed and celebrate the show with everybody," she said.
