Scott Caan, who was Danno in the rebooted “Hawaii Five-0,” is one of the co-stars in Fox’s first responder drama, “Alert,” premiering Jan. 8, following an NFL game.

Its regular slot will be Mondays at 8 p.m., beginning Jan. 9.

Caan will portray Jason Grant, partnering with Dania Ramirez as Nikki Batista,  in the drama where minutes and time matter. The show will boast a tagline, “For the Missing Persons Unit, Every Second Counts.”

Thus, Caan the actor still will be a cop in the Missing Persons Unit with the Philadelphia Police Department.

Scott Caan, Dania Ramirez will co-star in Fox’s “Alert” first responder series.

While the procedural will explore hunts for missing kids and adults, a parallel thread will be part of the story, since Jason and Nikki’s quest to locate missing people includes an alert to discover a long-lost missing son of theirs.

Each episode on Fox will air the next day on Hulu…

The masquerade continues

Ben Crawford is the Phantom.

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “The Phantom of the Opera,” the longest-running Broadway musical ever, has postponed its planned Feb. 18 closure. Instead, the show – with that majestic chandelier and that mystical and magical masquerade scene –  has been extended to April 16 at the Majestic Theatre.

It’s not surprising, however, since the show has been attracting audiences with box office grosses like a new hit; some want to see the production one more time, others want to catch the real McCoy for the first time. When the throngs are recurring, and expanding, it would be madness to shut down operations.

Ben Crawford and Emilie Kouatchou are the Phantom and Christine, respectively, in the current cast. …
