Fox sets ‘Baywatch’ telepic

'Blast' to include some original cast, including Hasselhoff

HONOLULU — “Baywatch” is rolling back onto Hawaii’s shores.

The decade-old lifeguard drama, canceled in February for poor ratings after relocating here in 1998 under the moniker “Baywatch Hawaii,” is being resuscitated as a two-hour telepic to air during February sweeps on Fox Television.

“Baywatch Blast,” starring many of the latest and original cast members, including the show’s most visible actor David Hasselhoff, production officials said.

The $5.5 million Lions Gate Television production in association with Fox Television will film on Oahu during October before finishing filming in Los Angeles.

The production crew will begin set preparation in Hawaii early next month September.

“Baywatch Blast” will be based at the Hawaii Film Studio at Diamond Head with exterior filming being done throughout Oahu, said Doug Schwartz, executive producer and writer of the TV movie.

Original cast members so far scheduled to appear include Alexandra Paul, Gena Lee Nolin, Nicole Eggert, Yasmine Bleeth, Donna D’Errico, Traci Bingham and Carmen Electra. Pamela Anderson has not confirmed whether she will appear, Schwartz said. “Baywatch Hawaii” cast members will include Michael Bergin, Jason Brooks and local actor Stacey Kamano.

Hasselhoff left the show in its first Hawaii season. Schwartz said the storyline is still being developed.
