Justin Lin directing period drama pilot set in Hawaii

New series from Shawn Ryan, creator of The Shield

Yeah, it's official -- Justin Lin is the busiest man in Hollywood. Here's news that he's attached to direct yet another project, a new Fox television pilot from Shawn Ryan, creator of The Shield: Shawn Ryan/Justin Lin Period Drama Set In Hawaii Gets Fox Put Pilot Commitment.

Co-written by Ryan and Davey Holmes, the untitled project is period crime drama set in 1957 Hawaii, two years before the territory becomes the 50th state. It sounds pretty intriguing, and one hopes that setting the series in Hawaii will at least mean we'll get to see some API actor representation... right?

Co-written by Ryan and Davey Holmes (Shameless), with Fast & The Furious' Justin Lin directing, the untitled project is set in 1957 in the Territory of Hawaii, which is on a path to become the 50th state in the Union two years later. Statehood and tourism are about to make a few men very rich, and when the brother of a small-time Hawaiian hustler is murdered, he resolves to wage war on the most powerful man on the island.
