'The Next MacGyver' Winners Usher In Hope For A New Generation of Female Engineers

16 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Next MacGyver Competition continued its year-long effort toward increasing the visibility of female engineers in the media with an afternoon of pitches, panels and a celebration of the five winners of a two thousand contestant challenge. Read More: 'MacGyver' Creator Lee Zlotoff On Women In Engineering And Finding a New Female Hero Julie Ann Crommett, the pioneer of Google's efforts toward improving the perception of engineering and computer science in the media, kicked things off with the opening remark that "the number two reason why teenage girls, both in high school and college, weren't pursuing the career was their perception of it. Not surprisingly, they were least likely to follow it, because of the stereotypes that they were seeing on screen." Changing these perceptions into those aimed at inspiring and motivating young women toward entering the field would be the focus of the afternoon's pitches. The five »

5 Badass Female TV Characters In Stem (And An Instance They Have MacGyvered)

24 July 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Lee Zlotoff's "The Next MacGyver" Competition launched in February with the goal to create an environment for young women to thrive as hopeful engineers. Zlotoff's aim to use the MacGyver legacy to inspire a generation by providing female engineers to look up to in the media is as commendable as it is exciting, especially given the idea that "MacGyver" has become synonymous with ingenuity and imagination. With this competition, we'll hopefully see more women in television associated with it. Read More: 'MacGyver' Creator Lee Zlotoff On Women In Engineering And Finding a New Female Hero Though the contest doesn't guarantee that any of the five winning ideas will see a green light, the fact that they'll have the help of distinguished engineers and practiced Hollywood producers favorably tips the odds. The finalists' ideas aren't too shabby, either. Before we see any of those come to life, however, »

'MacGyver' Creator Lee Zlotoff On Women In Engineering And Finding a New Female Hero

20 July 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Earlier this year, "MacGyver" creator Lee Zlotoff challenged aspiring screenwriters to "out-MacGyver" his legendary hero with a female engineer at the helm of their stories. "The Next MacGyver" competition, as it would be called, didn't ask for a female reboot of the 1985 action-adventure series, but for fresh pitches across a variety of genres to target a middle and high school demographic, and received nearly 2,000 entries in response. Read More: Sorry, Ladies: Study on Women in Film and Television Confirms The Worst Zlotoff has partnered with the The Paley Center for Media, USC's Viterbi School of Engineering and The National Academy of Engineering to narrow the massive amount of submissions down to 12 and, following an event of pitches and proposals on July 28, to a mere five (concept art for some of these projects is featured in this post). These winners will receive a $5,000 prize and two mentors: An experienced Hollywood. »

Besides Nicholas Kallsen and Brad Pitt, the show also featured Spike Alexander and Evan Mirand. Glory Days lasted a mere six episodes – two of which directed by former Happy Days actor Anson Williams – before its cancellation.

James Wan elaborates on his MacGyver remake and what happened to it

24 March 2015 3:16 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

If you remember back to 2012 you'll recall that we reported that James Wan was in talks to direct a big-screen adaptation of the classic Richard Dean Anderson series MacGyver. Soon afterwards the Fast & Furious franchise came calling and James Wan had to give up his MacGyver plans to go make a little film by the name of Furious 7. James Wan recently spoke to CraveOnline where he was asked about his abandoned MacGyver project and why he had to give it up. I love MacGyver. »

Dream Casting: 12 Former Action Stars We'd Love to See in 'The Expendables' TV Series

9 March 2015 12:39 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The explosive, action-packed world of The Expendables may be making its way to television, giving a score of former TV action stars a shot at career redemption.

According to Deadline, Sylvester Stallone, creator and star of The Expendables film franchise, is developing a spin-off series with Fox. Which raises the biggest question of all: Who will star in this wild ride?

Video: 'The Expendables 3' Stars Want Justin Bieber for the Next Film

Combing through the annals of action TV shows, we've compiled our dream list of former stars who could be called upon to take up arms once more and kick ass on our television screens.

1. Chuck Norris

If Norris isn't part of this, the world officially makes no sense. Sure, he and Stallone had their public differences after The Expendables 2, but the former Walker, Texas Ranger star is the perfect choice to bridge the gap between the film series and the small »

It’s Guns & Golden Oldies On The Small Screen As ‘The Expendables’ TV Series Announced

6 March 2015 5:15 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

As Expendables 3 star Harrison Ford survives an eye-popping plane crash, more surprise news emerges that the Sylvester Stallone-created brand is TV-bound.

It was thought a female-led movie – The Expendabelles – would be the next chapter for the franchise, but now Fox are putting an “event series” on the slate which will do for small screen icons of old what the films did for the likes of Stallone and Dolph Lundgren.

The definitive Hollywood resurrection man is on producing duties, whilst Shane Brennan, Greg Coolidge and Kirk Ward script the concept, which doesn’t sound a million miles away from the tried and tested formula.

Speculation will be rife on who’ll take part, but it’s safe to say Richard Dean Anderson (Macgyver), Mr T (The A-Team) and Lorenzo Lamas (Renegade) might soon be getting a call. I also see Fred Dryer (Hunter) and Dirk “The Face” Benedict being in the mix somewhere. »

The Mentalist Finale: Did Jane and Lisbon Get Their Happily Ever After?

18 February 2015 7:19 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It may all be over, but it couldn't have gone out with any sweeter of a bang. First, we got a whole hour of classic Mentalist when Jane had to pose as a professional psychic in order to bait a serial killer. The baiting worked perfectly, prompting the guy – who nicknamed himself Lazarus in a great bit of foreshadowing – to kidnap Jane (Simon Baker) and take him to some sort of remote serial killer-y house. Jane quickly and easily MacGyver'd his way out of the handcuffs and into the guy's mind, pretending he could speak to Lazarus' dead serial killer father. He lured Lazarus (whose real name is Keller) into another room, which he also rigged to explode. The explosion went off »
