Who­dunit? This time the view­ers get to de­cide

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TELEVISION -

VIEW­ERS will get to choose who they want Danno to book in Mon­day’s in­ter­ac­tive episode of Hawaii Five-O. There are three pos­si­ble out­comes for the Chan­nel Ten crime show and view­ers in each state can pick who com­mit­ted the mur­der of a univer­sity pro­fes­sor. The choices are the boss, the teacher’s as­sis­tant or the stu­dent. View­ers can cast their vote on Ten’s web­site (ten.com.au/tvshows/ hawai­ifive0.htm) un­til the episode screens. As the vot­ing is sep­a­rate for each state, po­ten­tially, all three end­ings could be used across the na­tion. The in­ter­ac­tive episode aired only a few weeks ago in the US and there was a spike on the CBS net­work’s web­site as well in so­cial me­dia trend­ing. Se­ries ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer Peter Lenkov says be­cause Hawaii Five-O aired at 10pm in the US it was dif­fi­cult to get peo­ple to watch the show live. He says up to three mil­lion peo­ple record the se­ries each week be­cause of the late times­lot. The in­ter­ac­tive episode was cre­ated to get peo­ple to change their view­ing habits and tune-in rather than record the episode. ‘‘How you get peo­ple to watch it live is dif­fi­cult and get­ting view­ers to par­tic­i­pate in the story telling is one way,’’ Lenkov says. ‘‘This is a novel way to get peo­ple to watch the show rather than record it.
