With the MacGyver panel happening this afternoon at the Television Critics Association press tour, CBS has released some new photos from the first episode of their rebooted version of the show. The update stars Lucas Till of X-Men fame alongside CSI’s George Eads. Here’s how they describe it:

MACGYVER, a reimagining of the classic series, is an action-adventure drama about 20-something Angus “Mac” MacGyver, who creates a clandestine organization within the U.S. government where he uses his extraordinary talent for unconventional problem solving and vast scientific knowledge to save lives. Joining his team on high-risk missions around the globe is maverick former CIA agent Jack Dalton and Patricia Thornton, ex-field agent turned director of operations and Riley Davis, an unpredictable computer hacker with a chip on her shoulder. At home, MacGyver is entertained by his ambitious roommate, Wilt Bozer. Under the aegis of the Department of External Services, MacGyver takes on the responsibility of saving the world, armed to the teeth with resourcefulness and little more than bubble gum and a paper clip.

You can see photos from the first episode below. The title of the episode is listed as “The Rising” and it will air on Friday, September 23.
