  • Crowd-sourcing female "McGyver" - but not a reboot

    "Thirty years ago, the original MacGyver created enormous interest around engineering with the exploits of Angus MacGyver, a spy who used his powers of engineering in every episode to solve problems.

    According to Lee Zlotoff, the show's creator: "I literally could not tell you how many times people have come up to me and said, 'I became an engineer, or I went into the sciences because of MacGyver.'-

    In the spirit of that show, in 2015, we are looking for TV ideas that will feature female engineers or female protagonists who will use their powers of engineering to solve problems.

    We're not looking to reboot the MacGyver franchise or bring back guys with mullets. We are asking: "Can you out-MacGyver MacGyver?- Can you imagine that next female hero that will inspire a generation of young women to see themselves as engineers?"
