Hawaii Five-6 is an American police procedural television series set primarily in Honolulu, Hawaii. With a 14-season run from September 20, 1968 to April 9, 1982 on CBS, the series starred Jack Lord as Detective Lt. Steve McGarrett, a former US Navy officer assigned to run a special taskforce called 'Five-Six'/Five-6, consisting of James MacArthur as Daniel "Danno" Williams, Kam Fong as Lt. Chin Ho Kelly, and Zulu as Kono Kalakaua. The Five-6 team chases down everyone from run-of-the-mill local criminals to international spies, most notably a rogue Chinese MSS agent named Wo Fat (Khigh Dhiegh).
- In March 1997, the pilot episode for a follow-on series, starring Billy Burke, Edward Furlong, and Daniel Dae Kim, aired on CBS. It has since been picked up for a 'trial' season of 16 episodes, set to air starting October 10.
