CBS Developing MacGyver Reboot

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Best.News.Ever!!! MacGyver was one of my favorite shows from my childhood. Dude could diffuse a bomb with just a paperclip or create a smoke distraction using everyday kitchen supplies. Sadly though, I made the mistake of rewatching the series a few years back. Love the show but some series don’t age very well. That’s exactly why this reboot is absolutely perfect. Think of all the things he can fashion with today’s technology.

Furious 7 and Insidious director James Wan is executive producing the project and directing the pilot. Henry Winkler, who exec produced the original series, is also on board to serve in the same capacity.

“A reimagining of the television series of the same name, following a 20-something MacGyver as he gets recruited into a clandestine organization where he uses his knack for solving problems in unconventional ways to help prevent disasters from happening.” – CBS

The original MacGyver ran for seven season on ABC from 1982-1992. Several attempts have been made to bring back the series both on the small and big screen, but no avail. Given Hollywood’s current love for all things nostalgic like Full House, Twin Peaks, Prison Break and The Muppets, it appears this time it actually might happen.

Are you excited at the prospect for a new and updated MacGyver? Weigh in below after checking out some memorable moments from the original series.

CBS Renews Zoo For A Second Season

In: Donovan, TV Shows

James Wolk has finally done it. The 30-year-old actor has notoriously bad luck when picking projects in the past. FOX’s Lone Star and CBS’ The Crazy Ones are just two shows that were canceled after one season. Georgetown never even saw the light of day on ABC. Success at long last. Wolk will finally get to see what a second season tastes like.

CBS decided to renew its summer series Zoo for a sophomore run. The show adapted from a James Patterson novel debuted in June to 8.18 million viewers and a 1.2 in the 18–49 demographic. It ended its freshman season with 4.81 million viewers and 0.9 in the rating. With Under The Dome canceled, prospects looked good for Zoo to return. The future of Extant, however, is still unknown.

“Zoo’s thrilling stories clicked with audiences each week during a very competitive summer,” said Glenn Geller, president of CBS Entertainment. “We’re excited for viewers to see where our talented writers and cast take them as the adventure continues to unfold during season two in the ultimate fight of man vs. beast.”

Did you watch Zoo? I did and actually enjoyed the first half of the season. The second half, especially the season finale was a bit of a letdown. Weigh in below.


I had no idea I was such a Matt Damon fan until I saw this segment on The Late Late Show. Every single film recreated in the hilarious clip, I’ve seen.

The 44-year-old actor and James Corden acted out snippets from his extensive film career, covering School Ties to We Bought a Zoo and everything in between. My favorite moments were the Ocean’s Eleven trilogy, Corden wearing a Morgan Freeman mask during Invictus, the blatant promo for Damon’s upcoming The Martian and Behind The Candelabra and Stuck On You. Check it out below.

The career of CBS News anchor Dan Rather pretty much came to a halt when a report about President George W. Bush’s military record came into question. Though the piece aired on 60 Minutes in 2004, it didn’t become a worldwide controversy that almost took down CBS News until 2010.

Truth, which screened at the Toronto International Film Festival, stars Robert Redford as Rather. However, it’s Cate Blanchet who portrays Rather’s producer Mary Mapes who’s getting all the Oscar buzz. I wouldn’t be surprised if the 46-year-old actress is on the shortlist once again. The Academy loves her.

The ‘Rathergate’ film is based on Mapes’ memoir entitled Truth and Duty. Elisabeth Moss, Dennis Quaid, Topher Grace and John Benjamin Hickey round out the cast. Truth opens in limited release in NY and LA on October 16 before expanding to other locations. Check out the first trailer below.

Katherine Heigl Joins Laverne Cox Drama Pilot

In: Donovan, TV Shows

After the one and done series run of State of Affairs, Katherine Heigl is taking another stab at a comeback. The 36-year-old actress is switching networks, though, in hopes of a different outcome.

Heigl heads over to CBS to star in the upcoming legal drama, Doubt. If the show name sounds familiar, this isn’t the first attempt. The eye network greenlit a pilot last year, but didn’t pick up the series for their upfronts presentation. Instead of ditching it completely, CBS decided to recast some key roles.
