Arizona has the role of the 1970's version of "Hawaii Five-O".
The original Five-O was filmed in Hawaii and back then every CBS exec had to "check on production" and take a two-week junket (boondoggle) to the set. When Five-O was reaching it's useful life those CBS exec's paid Hawaiian vacations were going away.
But lo-and-behold just as Five-O was going away, along comes a Texan with a fake British accent, a couple Doberman pinchers, a slickster named Rick, a chopper pilot, a Ferrari, ... and Tom Seleck's mustache. Magnum PI kept an excuse for CBS execs to go to the islands to "check on production" for about another decade.
And gee-why were those shows 're-imagined" recently? <-- That's rhetorical.
For NHL execs, especially the Canadian ones, Arizona in winter is "Hawaii 5-0/Magnum PI. " --> Gotta go and watch the team on the road ...
