TNT says aloha to ‘Hawaii Five-0’

Syndication sale sets CBS series for 2014 cable bow

Rookie CBS series “Hawaii Five-0” has been sold into syndication, running on TNT beginning in 2014.

CBS Television Distribution is believed to have fetched more than $2 million per episode for the procedural drama, a syndication-friendly format that has worked well for other CTD properties like “NCIS” and “Criminal Minds.”

“Hawaii,” which is about to wrap its freshman season on CBS, was bound to be a hot property in syndication given its strong start, first among new shows in the 18-49 demo. Episodes have standalone storylines that are easy to schedule.

“‘Hawaii Five-0’ is a topnotch procedural drama that has already built a strong following,” said Michael Wright, exec VP, head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies.

Deal was negotiated by Linda Yaccarino, exec VP-chief operating officer, Turner Entertainment ad sales/marketing and acquisitions, and Scott Koondel, prexy of distribution for CTD and senior VP of licensing and distribution for CBS Corp.

“Hawaii” is produced by K/O Paper Products and 101st Street Television in association with CBS Prods. Alex Kurtzman, Peter M. Lenkov and Roberto Orci are exec producers.
