MacGyver, a reimagining of the classic series, is an action-adventure drama about 20-something Angus "Mac" MacGyver, who creates a clandestine organisation 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; Riley Davis, an unpredictable computer hacker with a chip on her shoulder; Wilt Bozer, Mac's roommate and the newest agent on the team; and Matty Weber, a legend in Covert Ops, and the new Director of Operations at the Phoenix Foundation.

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.

Also, 34-year-old Angel suffers from endometriosis and decides to end the constant pain with a hysterectomy. When she goes to the doctor for a pre-operation examination, she finds that she's 32 weeks pregnant... and didn't even know it.

The series also addresses the many dangers both mother and baby face under these rare - and unusual - circumstances. How did they get through it?
