WB hot wires 'MacGyver' redo

17 October 2002 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

On the heels of the blockbuster success of Smallville, the WB Network is looking for its next young action hero franchise with a new take on the long-running spy drama MacGyver. The network has given a production order to a drama pilot from Paramount Network Television, tentatively titled Young MacGyver, which MacGyver producers Henry Winkler, Stephen Downing and John Rich are set to executive produce. Young MacGyver centers on the adventures of MacGyver's nephew, who is brought into the fold of Phoenix Foundation, a "think tank" dedicated to righting wrongs and defeating bad guys throughout the world. Sam Baum is writing the script and will serve as a supervising producer on the pilot. Casting is under way for the show's lead. Paramount's MacGyver, which ran on ABC from 1985-92, starred Richard Dean Anderson as MacGyver, a special agent who defeats bad guys using ingenuity, scientific knowledge and such ordinary items as paper clips and candy bars rather than force. »
