Lenkov executive produces both reboot series. The latest, MacGyver, just premiered in September and stars Lucas Till as a young Angus MacGyver, the special agent popularized by Richard Dean Anderson in the classic ’80s action drama.
In the interview, Lenkov said he’s hoping to do a crossover in the future:
I took a shot out of the MacGyver pilot in a flashback to Jack [George Eads] in Afghanistan. The shot was of the saddle of his gun. It said “Aloha” on the saddle, and the idea was that he knew McGarrett [Alex O’Loughlin] in the military. I still would like to take advantage of that. Somehow we’ll do a cross-over and those two guys knew each other. I’m hoping.”
What do you think? Are you a fan of either MacGyver or Hawaii Five-0? Do you want a crossover episode?
