Five-0's offices for this series are depicted as being in Alii'olani Hale (right across the street), a state office building of similar architecture built in the 1870's which actually houses Hawaii's Supreme Court.

When CBS announced this series for the fall of 2010, they released the opening credits from the pilot online. They featured an electric guitar version of the classic theme, and it was met with mixed results. Producers revealed they hadn't decided whether or not to use it on a permanent basis, so they decided to stay with the classic. They brought in a full orchestra to re-record it, and three of the members had even played on the original. The electric guitar rendition of the Hawaii Five-O theme song was later used on promotional advertisements. (imdb.com)
