At the Hawaii Five-0 session, star Alex O’Loughlin was asked whether he feels more confident that his new show will fare better than his previous 2 CBS series, Moonlight and Three Rivers. “Yeah, I do,” he said. “I don’t want to take anything away from the other shows I’ve done…  But the team behind this, I mean, the two men here who are at the helm of this show, Peter (Lenkov) and Alex (Kurtzman), and the writing staff that we have, everyone feels so capable. I read the pilot, I did the pilot, and I saw what they did with it. And there’s something special about it. If this one doesn’t go, I’m completely bewildered.  I have no idea how television works at all.”
