CBS has greenlit a reboot of “MacGyver,” starring “X-Men’s” Lucas Till in the title role, and a remake of Antoine Fuqua’s acclaimed 2001 film “Training Day.”
The two are among a slew of new series announced this morning for the network’s 2016-2017 schedule.
They’re joined by fellow dramas “Bull” and “Pure Genius,” the Matt LeBlanc comedy “Man With a Plan” and the Joel McHale comedy “The Great Indoors.”
