Stars of the rebooted TV series "Hawaii Five-0" are being honored at the state Capitol for the show's successful first season.
Cast members Alex O'Loughlin, who plays the lead role of Steve McGarrett, and Daniel Dae Kim, who plays Chin Ho Kelly, will be commended by state lawmakers Thursday for showcasing Hawaii, boosting the local television industry and bringing in high ratings.
Rep. Mark Takai, a Democrat representing Pearl City, said doubts about reviving the iconic series have been dispelled by the show's ability to draw fans worldwide.
Others being praised include Senior Vice President of Current Programming for CBS Glenn Geller, Executive Producer Peter Lenkov, Co-Executive Producer Paul Zbyszewski, Co-Executive Producer and Director Brad Turner and Producer and Unit Production Manager Jeff Downer.
