On the 26th of May, Peter Lenkov announced that there's a Twitter Account for the Writers of the MacGyver Reboot and that there will be live-tweeting:

Peter M. Lenkov @PLenkov
It looks like this is up and running -- @MacGyverWriters !!!! More LIVE TWEETING this FALL !!

It seems they do this also regularly for Hawaii 5-0 on the H50-Writers-Account (over at https://twitter.com/H50_Writers if you want to have a look) for a full two hours. We'll see if we also get two full hours or not; since H50 will air on Fridays just after MacGyver and Lenkov might not have the time to do both. Maybe they'll split the time (e.g. every Friday it's another writer live-tweeting).

We don't know yet everyone who's involved in the writing.

So far, the account on https://twitter.com/MacGyverWriters follows only two People with writing credits:

Peter M. Lenkov: https://twitter.com/PLenkov
Brandon Willer: https://twitter.com/brandonwiller

Me too! I also like the writers joining the fans while watching and the possibilty of talking to the writers online; maybe they will answer us some questions and talk about the process?

So far, the official CBS page lists two writers:

Peter Lenkov and Craig O'Neill (if I found the right IMDb page, he's a writer/producer on "Burn Notice" and "CSI: Cyber").

Another writer seemingly involved in the reboot is Brian Durkin via https://twitter.com/BrianCDurkin

He is an actor/writer/Producer according to IMDb, but so far only has 4 writing credits for short movies.

One person following writer Brian Willler is Dana Johann. She states in her Twitter account via https://twitter.com/Danedana that she's working for the Reboot. Her IMDb page lists her as a script coordinator.

I just found Dana Johann's FB page. She announced working for the Reboot on the 20th of May:

>>So.... My latest adventure begins next week. Very grateful and excited to be joining some awesome colleagues and really looking forward to meeting many new ones working on the "MacGyver" reboot, airing on CBS this Fall on Fridays at 8|7c! 😊<<

The comments on this post are much more interesting for us, though.

That's why I actually tweeted/twittered? him today, which I never do (for me, Twitter is mostly a tool to catch up on news, not to tweet myself). He hasn't replied to me, but actually favorited my tweet - so I hope maybe I got him thinking about his statement at least.

According to his IMDb page, he was born in 1975. So I think that "MacGyver" could/should also have been his show and not just his Dad's...

Dana at least seems to be open for FB comments. So if we don't overwhelm her, we might get into contact with her and get some answers to reasonable questions.

More importantly, she states on FB that she's a fan of the old show, so lets hope for the best.

I guess it will all go down to that new pilot. We can only hope they do it right this time.

I see Brian Durkin is now following MacGyver Online on Twitter. So there's still hope for him; maybe we can teach him some stuff happy.gif

Done.. or at least it will be in the morning.

A timeline's probably not something they would expect to even exist.

And that includes everything: ancient legends, stories and major events that affected MacGyver's and other peoples lives directly and indirectly with each other. It's pretty extensive but I still need to work on it.

Maybe he's waiting for some inspiration... or us fans to tell him what to write *lol*

Well, how about an opening gambit like the one with several uses of a map (The Gauntlet?) - only this time with a paperclip? *hint hint*

He deleted the post. WTH??

This whole posting and deleting thing is wearing very thin on me.

These guys need to get their damn act together and stop jerking the fans around! mad.gif if this is a sign of things to come I'm losing hoped fast.

If it's meant to be some kind of tease, it's failing in my view. It's just annoying.

Just saw that and wanted to come over here to ask if I did anything offensive *lol*. The last time I checked his account, the post was still fresh - maybe some offensive comments later on and he decided to delete everything? Maybe he had to give back that paperclip because it was only a loan? roller.gif

Deleting that post completely makes no sense to me - the Reboot is officially happening and his first post with the SAK is still up (also retweeted by the MacGyversWriters Account)...

I've also been wondering about the deleted Trailer on social media accounts because the material was added as a first look preview to the official CBS site on http://www.cbs.com/shows/macgyver/ (I can't see it because it's restricted, but it's still there for anyone in the US to see). People in the US get to see material that won't be shown on TV, but the rest of the world is not allowed to, so they deleted it from international social media accounts? Just thinking and wondering about it makes my head hurt doh.gif

Brian also has an Instagram account and the knife pic is still on there: https://www.instagram.com/briancdurkin/

Interestingly, that whole Twitter convo I posted earlier got deleted also (the post itself is still up). So my guess is he was "advised" to delete some stuff and deleting a post completely is sure less time-consuming than deleting single comments...

I don't know what CBS is playing at; but it makes more sense now why it's suddenly so quiet on the social media front in general... Peter Lenkov hasn't posted anything else either.

I've noticed that Lucas Till hasn't said much either. I assume it's quieted down for a number of reasons. With all the negativity towards the reboot, and Lucas himself, I bet they went under the radar so they can focus. That type of negativity can be really discouraging... even if it was to be expected.
