HONOLULU (Variety) -
"Baywatch'' is rolling back onto Hawaii's shores.
The decade-old lifeguard drama, canceled in February for poor ratings after relocating here in 1998 under the moniker
"Baywatch Hawaii,'' is being resuscitated as a two-hour TV movie to air during February sweeps on Fox Television.
"Baywatch Blast'' stars many of the latest and original cast members, including the show's most visible actor David Hasselhoff, who left the show in its first Hawaii season.
Production officials said the $5.5 million production will shoot on Oahu during October followed by filming in Los Angeles.
Original cast members so far scheduled to appear include Alexandra Paul, Gena Lee Nolin,
Nicole Eggert, Yasmine Bleeth, Donna D'Errico, Traci Bingham and Carmen Electra. Pamela Anderson has not confirmed whether she will appear, said Doug Schwartz, executive producer and writer of the TV movie.
"Baywatch Hawaii'' cast members will include Michael Bergin, Jason Brooks and local actor Stacey Kamano.
Schwartz said the storyline is still being developed.
