Magnum's 'stache to get nod in reboot of CBS show

2018-08-06 10:13

California — The reboot of Magnum P.I. won't forget fans of the original hit starring Tom Selleck, paying quiet homages recognisable to long-time viewers.

They include a pair of Dobermans, the red Ferrari, and the bickering relationship between Magnum, who is played by Jay Hernandez, and Higgins, with Perdita Weeks taking on the role that was a man in the original.

Just don't look for the big moustache that Selleck sported in the 1980s original on CBS. His character, along with those of Higgins and T.C., all sported 'staches.

Executive producer Peter Lenkov says Selleck brought that aesthetic to the role and the reboot aims to step away from his version of the character.

However, there will be what Lenkov calls "a little nod" to the moustache in the second episode.

The series debuts on 24 September in the US.
