CBS developing Magnum PI reboot

We know what you're thinking... and you're right.

Deadline is reporting that CBS has given a pilot production commitment to Magnum P.I.

Lenkov is the showrunner on both Hawaii Five-0 and MacGyver, two other reboots now airing on CBS, and Guggenheim is a writer on the former.

The 35-year-old Wade has been reunited in Cleveland with LeBron James, his teammate for four seasons in Miami. Dwyane Wade reached out to Cavaliers coach Tryonn Lue Sunday and asked to come off the bench going forward.

"Magnum P.I." is officially heading back to the small screen. John Davis and John Fox of Davis Entertainment will also executive produce.

As The Hollywood Reporter points out, since Selleck is now under contract with fellow CBS drama Blue Bloods, it's plausible that the actor could appear on Magnum P.I. as well, although it's unclear whether he would don the Detroit Tigers cap again.

The rebooted series will include an updated plot line that "follows Thomas Magnum (Selleck's former role), a decorated ex-Navy SEAL who, upon returning home from Afghanistan, repurposes his military skills to become a private investigator".

I felt he kind of caught it at first, so after that, it was just trying to strip it out of his hands and fight through it". The Wildcats and Sooners will play through rain, but they won't be allowed on the field if there is lightning in the area.

It's unclear whether Selleck will return for the reboot, but as he is now under contract with CBS for the hit show "Blue Bloods", it's plausible that he could appear on the new "Magnum P.I". A reboot of the classic 1980s TV series, which starred a memorably hirsute Tom Selleck in the title role, is in the works at CBS, according to Variety.

For those wondering if Selleck (and his magnificent mustache) will be involved in the reboot in any way, it's unlikely.

Following Amy Carlson's shocking exit in the Season 8 premiere, CBS had another piece of news that had fans of Blue Bloods anxious about their favorite Friday night TV series. I hear he opted not to get formally on board but gave the project his blessing.

The agency says 26 Mann's products , two Compliments products and six Western Family products are affected by the recall. Other recalled products include nine-ounce bags of shaved brussels sprouts and 10-ounce bags of cauliflower florets.

Last year, ABC has spearheaded a potential sequel series featuring Magnum's daughter, Lily "Tommy" Magnum. Perhaps he will make a cameo appearance if the series does move forward.
