The Herald (Zimbabwe) - - Showbiz / Classified - Lifestyle Cor­re­spon­dent

BAD guys don’t stand a chance this November with M-Net’s ac­tion-packed crime drama line-up fea­tur­ing the re­boot of the clas­sic cop se­ries Mag­num P.I., which pre­miered on Wed­nes­day 07 November at 20:00 and the new po­lice pro­ce­dural Gone, start­ing Thurs­day 22 November at 21:00 .

In a mod­ern take on the cult Tom Sel­leck crime se­ries, the re­vamped Mag­num P.I. finds Jay Her­nan­dez in the tit­u­lar role as the dec­o­rated for­mer Navy SEAL who re­pur­poses his mil­i­tary skills to be­come a pri­vate in­ves­ti­ga­tor. Cool, calm, and al­ways col­lected, Thomas Mag­num is a charm­ing rogue, an Amer­i­can hero – and a die-hard Detroit Tigers fan liv­ing on a lux­u­ri­ous es­tate where he works as a se­cu­rity con­sul­tant to sup­ple­ment his P.I. busi­ness.

Keeping him in line is the es­tate’s stew­ard Juliet Hig­gins: a beau­ti­ful and com­mand­ing dis­avowed MI6 agent, as well as Mag­num’s trusted bud­dies and fel­low vets, Theodore “TC” Calvin, a for­mer Marine chop­per pi­lot who runs a he­li­copter tour busi­ness and Orville “Rick” Wright, a for­mer Marine door-gun­ner-turned-im­pre­sario of the is­land’s coolest night­club. With keys to a vin­tage Fer­rari in one hand, avi­a­tor sun­glasses in the other and a beer chilling in the fridge, Thomas Mag­num is back on the case!

The crime drama stars Jay Her­nan­dez (Sui­cide Squad, The Fixer) as Thomas Mag­num, Perdita Weeks (Ready Player One, Penny Dread­ful) as Juliet Hig­gins, Zachary Knighton (Flash­for­ward, Par­ent­hood) as Orville “Rick” Wright and Stephen Hill (Board­walk Empire, Law & Or­der: SVU) as Theodore “TC” Calvin.

Mag­num P.I. is ex­ec­u­tive pro­duced by Peter M. Lenkov (Hawaii Five-0), Eric Guggen­heim (Hawaii Five-0), Justin Lin (Fast & Fu­ri­ous), John Davis (The Black­list), John Fox (The Black­list) and Danielle Woodrow (S.W.A.T.).

The fast-paced cop drama Gone in­tro­duces us to Kit “Kick” Lani­gan, the sur­vivor of a fa­mous child-ab­duc­tion case and Frank No­vak, the FBI agent who res­cued her. De­ter­mined to never fall vic­tim again, Kick trains her­self in the use of firearms and in mar­tial arts as a young woman. When No­vak cre­ates a spe­cial task force ded­i­cated to solv­ing ab­duc­tions and miss­ing per­son’s cases, he per­suades Kick to join in and to­gether, the pair work to solve cases and bring vic­tims back home.

Also on the team is for­mer Army in­tel­li­gence of­fi­cer John Bishop, Kick’s hacker friend and con­fi­dant Jack Fin­ley and Agent Maya Kennedy, an ex­pe­ri­enced in­ves­ti­ga­tor who worked on Kick’s case.

Emo­tional and pow­er­ful, Gone stars Golden Globe-nom­i­nee Chris Noth (The Good Wife, Law & Or­der) as FBI Agent Frank No­vak, Leven Ram­bin (The Path, True De­tec­tive) as Kit “Kick” Lan­ni­gan, Danny Pino (Law & Or­der: Spe­cial Vic­tims Unit, Cold Case) as John Bishop Andy Mien­tus (Smash, The Flash) as James Fin­ley and Tra­cie Thoms (Cold Case) as FBI Agent Maya Kennedy.

The se­ries is cre­ated and writ­ten by Matt Lopez (The Sorcerer’s Ap­pren­tice) and ex­ec­u­tive pro­duced by Barry O’Brien (CSI: Mi­ami), JoAnn Al­fano (30 Rock), Kim Moses (Ghost Whis­perer), Sara Col­leton (Dex­ter).
