CBS is Creating a Dr. Phil Prequel TV Pilot


It’s official – CBS is picking up two new shows including MacGyver and a drama series about Dr. Phil.

According to reports, the MacGyver reboot has landed a formal pilot order at CBS. The MacGyver is a reimagining of the 1980’s TV series of the same name, following a younger MacGyver as he gets recruited into a clandestine organization where he uses his knowledge for solving problems in unconventional ways to help prevent disasters from happening.CBS started working on the MacGyver TV show in October and was a high priority for the network.


CBS also ordered a drama pilot for Bull, which is based on the early career of Dr. Phil McGraw, before he was a talk show host and during his days as head of one of the biggest trial consulting services of all time.

CBS is also rebooting Training Day and Nancy Drew with a younger, non-white leading actor this pilot season.
