Synopsis

Set in Hawaii the show follows Jack Lord as he plays Steve McGarrett, head of an elite state police unit investigating "organized crime, murder, assassination attempts, foreign agents, felonies of every type."

Hawaii Five-0 is the name of a special police unit consisting of no more than four men at a time, although it can freely call upon the Honolulu Police Department for more men if needed.

Answerable only to the governor, Five-0 investigates the most important and sensational crimes, ranging from murder and kidnapping to terrorism and international espionage.

Five-0's leader is ex-Navy Intelligence investigator Steve McGarrett, a tough Irish cop possessed with a determined nature, a hatred of crime and an elaborate bouffant hairdo.

Other Five-O personnel included Dan Williams, second-in-command and "Dan-O" to McGarrett; pipe-smoking Chinese Chin Ho Kelly, native Hawaiian Kono; Samoan detective Ben Kokua; and Hawaiian Duke Lukela, who worked his way up from patrolman.

McGarrett's arch enemy is Red Chinese agent Wo Fat, whose plans are always thwarted by McGarrett, and who always manages to escape the reach of the law - at least until the final episode.

Guest stars include Helen Hayes, Ricardo Montalban, Leslie Nielsen, Herbert Lom, Hume Cronyn among others. McGarrett's nemesis is the evil Wo Fat — "a Red Chinese agent in charge of the entire Pacific Asiatic theatre."

Hawaii Five-O's executive producers include Leonard Freeman, Philip Leacock and Douglas Green. The drama was created by Leonard Freeman.

A reimagined series called Hawaii Five-0 - using the number 0 in the title instead of the letter O - began airing in the USA in 2010.
