Scoop: MACGYVER on CBS - Friday, November 3, 2017
MacGyver, a reimagining of the classic series, is an action-adventure drama about 20-something Angus "Mac" MacGyver, 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 Jack Dalton; Riley Davis, an unpredictable computer hacker with a chip on her shoulder; Wilt Bozer, Mac's roommate and the newest agent on the team; and Matty Weber, a legend in Covert Ops, and the new Director of Operations at the Phoenix Foundation. Under the aegis of the Department of External Services, 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. On "Jet Engine + Pickup Truck" using a cassette player and a plastic bucket, Mac and the team attempt to extinguish a massive oil wellhead fire in a Nigerian village, set by a REBEL group, which is trying to topple its government by destroying their most valuable resource, on MACGYVER, Friday, Nov. 3 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
