Hawaii is a United States television series produced and distributed by NBC Universal Television for the NBC television network. Originally titled Pearl City, this police drama was produced with the series Hawaii Five-O in mind, and debuted on August 31, 2004. Written by Executive Producer Jeff Eastin, the series revolves around a fictional elite crime unit of the Honolulu Police Department headed by veteran detective and local legend Sean Harrison (Michael Biehn) and John Declan (Sharif Atkins), a former Chicago Police Department detective transferred to Hawaii for his talents.

The series was written by Jeff Eastin, Chris Black, Reid Steiner, Wendy West, Eric Haywood, and Travis Romero.

The series is considered[by whom?] one of the most ambitious projects in the history of the Hawaii State Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism's Hawaii Film Office, desperate to repeat the economic prosperity once gained and driven by the CBS television series such as Hawaii Five-O and Magnum, P.I. for the state's tourism industry.[citation needed]

The series was canceled in October 2004 and though eight episodes were filmed, only seven were aired.
