MacGyver Series Star from OTP

The CBS series “MacGyver,” which airs on Friday nights, stars Lucas Till, an Atlanta native, Kell high school graduate as Angus “Mac” MacGyver. Till, 25, graduated from the Cobb County public school in 2008 and has starred in other shows too.

CBS is rebooting the original series, which aired on ABC from 1985 to 1992 and starred Richard Dean Anderson. Also starring in the series is another CBS veteran, George Eads, a regular on the original “CSI.”

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 and Patricia Thornton, ex-field agent turned director of operations and Riley Davis, an unpredictable computer hacker with a chip on her shoulder.

At home, MacGyver is entertained by his ambitious roommate, Wilt Bozer. 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.
