Whodunit? This time the viewers get to decide
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.
