    The show is set in Hawaii partly because CBS did not want to close its Hawaii production offices when Hawaii Five-0 (1968) ceased production in 1980. This show started production that year and contains occasional references to Steve McGarrett and 'Five-O', although McGarrett was never shown.

    In an interview for "Bravo TV's Countdown of the 100 Greatest Television Characters" Tom Selleck said his character, Thomas Magnum, was initially written as a "James Bond of television, visiting stewardess on each arm, flawlessly perfect" kind of character, which Selleck hated. By his own admission, he told the writers and producers "I'm tired of playing what I look like." When asked what he wanted to do, Selleck remembered how much fun he had working with James Garner on The Rockford Files and suggested making Magnum more of a laid back, blue collar average Joe. His rationale was that if men watched the show and were able to identify with him, it would bring in even more male viewers. The writers and producers initially refused, and Selleck threatened to do Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark instead. The writers and producers relented and Magnum became the approachable, charming jock character that Selleck would become famous for.
