Magnum P.I. is re-made. Thomas Magnum Pi, a decorated ex-Navy SEAL, who, upon returning home from Afghanistan repurposes his military skills to become a private investigator. The drama series, which is based on the Tom Selleck fronted 1980s hit, is produced by CBS Television Studios and Universal Television and stars Jay Hernandez, Perdita Weeks, Stephen Hill and Zachary Knighton. Magnum P.I. was rumoured to be on Sky One’s wish-list when they sent execs to the LA Screenings, especially given its appeal to the channel’s core audience. It becomes the third reboot of a classic series to land at the satcaster’s flagship channel; joining both Hawaii Five-0 and MacGyver. The new Magnum Pi is shown on Sky every Wednesday evening from January 2019, with season two aleady being filmed. Suppoting the fact that Pi’s have been and still are, a productive industry to watch, use and train for.
