As for the plot, CBS says this:
A secret agent unlike any other, MacGyver escapes perilous situations with nothing but a paper clip, his trusty knife and his wit. A dynamic reimagining of the hit TV series, this action packed origin story follows a young hero as he undertakes missions to save lives and change the world. MacGyver stars Lucas Till and George Eads. Coming this Fall to CBS.
