WINDHOEK, NOV. 8 – Bad guys don’t stand a chance this November with M-Net 101’s action-packed crime drama line-up featuring the reboot of the classic cop series Magnum P.I., 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.
