CBS’s upfront presentation took place today, and with that comes our first look at its new fall shows — including a reboot of the classic Richard Dean Anderson adventure series MacGyver.
Take a peek at the 2-minute trailer below.
Lucas Till (X-Men: Apocalypse) stars as a 20-something version of Angus “Mac” MacGyver, who is recruited to join a clandestine organization where he uses his knack for solving problems in unconventional ways to help prevent disasters from happening.
George Eads (CSI) also stars, though the rest of the line-up is being recast following the pilot.
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.
The network also announced that the show will start off Friday nights at 8/7c this fall, leading into new seasons of Hawaii Five-O and Blue Bloods.
MacGyver comes from writers and executive producers Peter Lenkov and Michael Clear, with Henry Winkler, Lee Zlotoff, and James Wan also executive producing.
