CBS is looking to MacGyver itself a
old new hit series.
The Eye network is developing a contemporary version of the classic ABC ’80s action drama, TVLine has confirmed.
The potential new series — hailing from Saw and Furious 7 director James Wan, the original show’s executive producer Henry Winkler and NCIS: LA‘s R. Scott Gemmill — follows twentysomething Angus MacGyver as he gets recruited into the clandestine organization from the old ABC drama. As he uses his knack for solving problems in unconventional ways to help prevent disasters, the remake will reveal how MacGyver acquired his famous skill sets.
Gemmill will pen the pilot.
