A MESSAGE OF THANKS FROM HENRY WINKLER AND JOHN RICH
To the "MacGYVER" family:
Congratulations and thank you... every one of you... for
bringing "MacGYVER" to this milestone. The production of 100
hours of imaginative, socially responsible television is an
extraordinary accomplishment made possible by your
dedication and pride in your work. You may be justly proud
of your achievement.
We feel so
lucky to have Richard Dean Anderson as our Star Performer.
His efforts, energy and level of cooperation -- above and
beyond the call of duty -- have done much to cement the
feeling of "one-ness" that characterizes our set. All this
on top of an exceptional ability to create and maintain a
performance that each week figuratively jumps off the screen
and compels devoted attention from an ever-widening
impossible to praise highly enough our production team in
Vancouver led by our partner, Executive Producer Steve
Downing. His skill as a writer, innovative creator and
managerial genius are without parallel in the industry and
we are deeply indebted to him.
L.A., management support from Paramount's Mel Harris, John
Pike and John Symes has been exemplary, and we are most
grateful for ABC-TV's continued commitment to the series.
sincerest thanks to all of you! We're looking forward to the
Henry Winkler John Rich
