MACGYVER Preview: First Look at CBS’ New Action Drama

CBS is rebooting a classic with MACGYER, a re-imagining of the late ’80s/early ’90s series.

In the reboot, Angus “Mac” MacGyver (Lucas Till) is a 20-something who creates a clandestine organization within the U.S. government where he uses his extraordinary talent for unconventional problem solving and vast scientific knowledge to save lives.

Joining his team on high-risk missions around the globe is maverick former CIA agent Lincoln (George Eads). Under the aegis of the Department of External Affairs, MacGyver takes on the responsibility of saving the world, armed to the teeth with resourcefulness and little more than bubble gum and a paper clip.
