Well that would depend on who is rebooting the project. Do they take special consideration to its fan base? Can they blend the times of then to today and can they make stories that bring in the audience?

Imagine what MacGyver would have turned out like if it was rebooted by the Duffer brothers? (Creators of Stranger Things) or Michael Greenburg (Producer of Stargate SG1 & Friend of RDA).

What if it was rebooted by Lee David Zlotoff himself? So he could've been fully involved from start to finish.

I'm in 2 minds about that. Although Lee created the character, he did not define him. RDA and the producers and writers of that time did. They had little to work with and improvised. It all led to success.

Even though Lee and Winckler are involved in the reboot, their involvement is minimal i think. And so long as the audience is there who cares if its nothing like the original. That's just my opinion. Of course i mean no disrespect to any of the producers or creators. Just frustrating how i cannot connect to this new incarnation like i did with the old.

Mac was pretty much a one-man show in the original series. In the new version he works with a team. Personally, I prefer the original concept (although Tristin Mays is beautiful).

Here's the new Magnum: http://variety.com/2018/tv/news/magnum-pi-...dez-1202705365/

He's 12 years older than Lucas Till, but to me feels even younger than new Mac blink.gif .


‘Magnum PI’ Reboot Pilot at CBS Casts Jay Hernandez in Lead Role

The “Magnum P.I.” reboot pilot has cast Jay Hernandez as the titular private eye, Variety has learned.

Hernandez will play Thomas Magnum, a decorated ex-Navy SEAL who, upon returning home from Afghanistan, repurposes his military skills to become a private investigator. Tom Selleck, who currently stars in the CBS drama “Blue Bloods,” played the role in the original series.

Hernandez’s recent film roles include the DC Entertainment film “Suicide Squad” and appearances in both entries in the “Bad Moms” comedy franchise. He has also appeared in films like “Friday Night Lights,” “Hostel,” and in the Netflix fantasy-action film “Bright.” On the television side, he has recently appeared in “Scandal,” “Nashville,” and “The Expanse.”

He is repped by ICM Partners, Alchemy Entertainment and Fuller Law.

Peter Lenkov, the writer and producer behind current CBS reboots of “Hawaii Five-O” and “MacGyver,” will serve as the writer and executive producer on the new version of “Magnum P.I.,” which had previously gotten a pilot production commitment at the network. Eric Guggenheim, an executive producer and writer on Lenkov’s “Hawaii Five-O,” will also write and executive produce. John Davis and John Fox of Davis Entertainment will also executive produce along with Danielle Woodrow. Justin Lin will direct the pilot and executive produce. CBS Television Studios will co-produce with Universal Television.

This is one of several such projects ordered to pilot at CBS. CBS has also ordered a pilot for a reboot of the female-led cop drama “Cagney and Lacey,” as well as an adaptation of “LA Confidential” and a revival of “Murphy Brown.”

A Latin guy? Well, we'll see when he grows a moustache. He does get a moustache, doesn't he?

Justin Lin directing the pilot sounds interesting though.

I've been wondering about that. Mustaches aren't that trendy at the moment, no? But it seems to work fine with Clay Crawford in "Lethal Weapon".

But it's one thing Magnum was famous for: the guy with the mustache. It's pretty much part of the character as Jack's mustache. Having Riggs with a mustache took some getting used to and to me it didn't fit the character. But having Magnum without it... If there is one character that can bring it back, it's Magnum. I wonder if they dare to go where the original series went.

Peter Lenkov posted many pictures of the old Ferrari recently. But if you look at the official Magnum Twitter Account via CBS, the profile picture features a modern one: https://twitter.com/MagnumPI_CBS

I guess it depends if they got Ferrari to do some sponsoring (like Hilton for H50 or Victorinox for MacGyver). If that's the case, of course they would want Magnum to have a modern model that you can actually buy in stores at the moment. Although it's possible that maybe in the beginning, he has a classic one that gets totaled either in the pilot episode or later in the (Midseason) Finale, for example?

I don't watch the "MacGYVER" reboot and I won't be watching the "Magnum P.I." reboot either.

I agree with Slater, shows in the 80's were unique for their time and don't translate well three decades later. The changes that need to be made to appeal to today's audience detract from what made the show(s) a hit the first time around.

Only to the ones who were around in the 80's. For kids watching the shows today they are unique for this time and hits. MacGyver, foe example, is constantly getting ratings equal to all the other shows in it's time slot added together.


I'm really surprised we haven't seen an A-Team reboot. That show fits the CBS "team template" perfectly.

The A-Team was rebooted in 2010 with the launch of the movie however it did not meet the expectation required to continue it as a franchise.

They have however been trying to develop a new TV series. Currently there is a lot of hearsay as to what it will be about, so nothing concrete at this stage.

Correct and they wanted more women on the team. Something George Peppard always held back. That's why Amy and shortwhile later Tawnia left. Amy wanted a bigger part and even wanted to participate in fight scenes. Peppard said there was no need for women roles. If he said it out of machoism that's not okay in my book, if it was because it really was not necessary (after all you had your four leading characters) that's something else. The movie was alright, the series got too repetitive after a while and the first three episodes of the fifth season should've been the last with Amy arranging a pardon.

George Peppard was synonymous for being a demanding and difficulty actor to work with. But in his defense, the 80's were all about muscle and that mostly came from the male department.

Even though shows like Charlies Angels were around, A-Team was always seen as the "Tougher""'Nam Boys" look.

In this "paparazzi" video (can't embedd it directly so took a screenshot), you can see a scene filming with the Ferrari. Don't know anything about Ferraris, but this looks like an older model to me.

Well... since there actuallly seems to be two Ferraris on sets with 2 different licence plates (ROBIN 1 and ROBIN 2), I guess the old one (ROBIN 1) will get crashed laugh.gif

Magnum was originally a "Team" kinda show but there were a few exceptions. He did not always have his compadres with him. This will no doubt have him stuck indefinitely to his teammates.

Do we have any idea who will play the Higgins character?

Denizen - Jonathan Higgins has become Juliet Higgins in the reboot (It's OUT-RAGEOUS!). She's played by Perdita Weeks.

Yep, Rick and TC misses a couple of episodes, Higgins only one. But mostly in the later seasons Magnum is on his own a couple of times and Rick, TC and Higgins only have a cameo.

They just can't leave well enough alone. Magnum was in my opinion alwas more daring then MacGyver. Even though MacGyver is a regular guy as Magnum, he's near-perfect even though he's "not perfect. Yet." Magnum is more flawed, he's sloppy, unorganized, he's the one asking for favors and there are a lot more twists in the episodes, like unexpected deaths while MacGyver will always be just in time to save everyone. There are couple of endings in Magnum that would've never happened in MacGyver. Take a look at Echoes of the Mind, the episodes with Sharon Stone or Did You Seen The Sunrise? Sometimes things happen that Magnum has to learn how to deal with if he couldn't save that person or stop him or her from doing something stupid. But then again that's why Magnum and MacGyver are my two most favorite shows from the 80's. Complete opposites: MacGyver is neat while Magnum is sloppy. MacGyver is asked to help his friends, Magnum asks his friends to help. MacGyver has a fear of commitment, Magnum is more of a ladies man despite a lot of the women he loved died too, but I don't think that makes him fear a commitment.

Whatever makes money, I guess.

I think the poison that was used was applied to this knife, passed to the mutton when it was cut and then activated by the wine. - MacGyver.

Magnum was originally a "Team" kinda show but there were a few exceptions. He did not always have his compadres with him. This will no doubt have him stuck indefinitely to his teammates.

Do we have any idea who will play the Higgins character?

Yep, Rick and TC misses a couple of episodes, Higgins only one. But mostly in the later seasons Magnum is on his own a couple of times and Rick, TC and Higgins only have a cameo.

They just can't leave well enough alone. Magnum was in my opinion alwas more daring then MacGyver. Even though MacGyver is a regular guy as Magnum, he's near-perfect even though he's "not perfect. Yet."

I know others have said this before, but a MacGyver/Magnum crossover would be pretty cool. I mean the originals, not the reboots, since the Magnum reboot isn't out yet.

Denizen - Jonathan Higgins has become Juliet Higgins in the reboot (It's OUT-RAGEOUS!). She's played by Perdita Weeks.

Thanks for that Connelly. Guess I should have expected that from Lenkov.

SPOILER ALERT!

Pilot Script Preview by Season Zero: http://season-zero.com/magnum-pi-cbs-pilot-preview/

It's a longer read, so just go over there if you want to read the full thing. I only brought some "highlights" back here; the one's that are connected with MacGyver.


(...)

Our other principal characters are kinda non-existent in the pilot. (...) There’s also another woman, Hannah Boyle, a former CIA Intel Analyst and Magnum’s ex-girlfriend. She was supposed to be dead, until we learn she’s not.

Looks like someone run out of ideas blink.gif

(...)

We’ll also find our hero on his surf ski, wearing bord-shorts, paddling. Because he’s cool. And the opening scene includes a next-generation space capsule, a space-suit, a parachute and a water Buffalo. Just sayin’! Magnum wants to be cooler than Hawaii 5-0, Macgyver & Scorpion reunited so they’re going over the top and only a good director can make this look good and not too ridiculous. Fast & Furious‘ Justin Lin is probably the right guy for the job.

(...)

They kept Magnum’s voice-over as part of the storytelling, which is not a good idea if you ask me. It makes it sound old-fashioned. It was not needed but one can argue it’s part of the charm of the original show and it would have been a pity not to use it again. Let’s just hope Jay Hernandez will do it right. Not sure what else I can tell you about this pilot. I didn’t describe Magnum but he’s exactly like you think he is. Exactly like other CBS’s leading men. Nothing new. Well, he’s a latino guy, so there’s that. And about the investigation, it works exactly as in any other CBS procedural. If you like that and if you’re not tired of it, then you should have a ball!

As expected, CBS has picked up the pilot and ordered to series: http://tvline.com/2018/05/11/magnum-pi-reb...od-friended-me/

Will be interesting to see the schedule and if that means any changes for the MacGyver Reboot or H50.
