HONOLULU (AP) - A&E Television has given the go-ahead for the pilot of a new crime series based in Honolulu.
But it remains to be seen if the pilot for the series with the working title ''Cooler Kings'' will be shot in Hawaii.
State film commissioner Donne Dawson says everything possible will be done to get it shot in the islands, especially since the story line is set in Hawaii.
A&E says the show is about a former Honolulu police officer bent on revenge for the death of his girlfriend who ''meets a mysterious crew of detectives called the Cooler Kings, who offer him an unlikely chance at redemption.''
In describing the series, the network goes on to say, ''Honolulu used to be a paradise. Now it's a 21st century boomtown of vice, narcotics, power, corruption, betrayal and murder.''
