    Monday marks the first day of shooting for the second season of "Magnum P.I.," a reboot of the classic 80s show starring actor Tom Selleck. The crew kicked off the day with a blessing from Kahu Kordell Kekoa, who called the main cast and crew to one of the set's stages in Kapolei. After the blessing, Peter Lenkov, the show's executive producer, addressed the cast. Then, immediately afterward, the cast headed off to rehearsal. Season 2 premieres Friday, Sept. 27.
