September 24th, 2014

CBS have teamed up with MacGyver creator, Lee Zlotoff to represent the merchandising rights for the iconic TV series.

There has been no explanation of exactly what the terms of the agreement are or what exactly it means for either party, but executive vice president and general manager of CBS Consumer Products, Liz Kalodner said in her statement that they will look to work with licensees who have the same sort of creativeness as the MacGyver character.

CBS is the licensed owner of the MacGyver TV series having acquired the show as part of it’s incorporation with Paramount Television. We’ll have to wait to see if this agreement has any reciprocal benefits for Zlotoff’s new MacGyver projects.

Mobile game publisher, Fairplay Media, has announced that the new MacGyver game titled MacGyver: Deadly Descent, is due to be released on May 21st 2014. Developed with input from the creator of MacGyver, Lee David Zlotoff, Deadly Descent sees Mac return to his roots as a young problem solver tapped as the last hope when a computer virus rips through the top secret D.A.W.N Laboratories, trapping its scientists underground. Arriving on the scene, Mac realizes it’s a race against time before the laboratory runs out of air and so must make a potentially deadly descent into the complex. Mac works his way through the labyrinth of complex puzzles but, little does he know, that an even deadlier enemy awaits him in the darkness. Fairplay Media Production Director, Mark Mainey, enthuses “It’s exciting working with Lee [Zlotoff] and such a well known character in MacGyver. The possibilities are endless! Deadly Descent really sets the scene with Mac being called in by Jack as the last hope in a crisis and putting the player in a position to save the day.” “We wanted to create something that acknowledges the past and ‘stirs’ those memories and at the same time bring Mac and the experience into the present.” MacGyver: Deadly Descent will be released on all iOS and Android formats (including Amazon Kindle) around the globe on 21st of May as a premium title with a portion of proceeds going to support The MacGyver Foundation.
