The adventures of a secret Agent armed with almost infinite scientific resourcefulness.
The first two seasons of the show were shot entirely in the Los Angeles area. However, as an adventure series, ABC was ready to cancel, due to the price of location filming and time spent moving the production crew over a six-day shoot schedule. With threat of cancellation, the producers, including Henry Winkler, decided to send the show to Vancouver, where location moves could be made within an hour. In one day, an episode could move from an ocean scene to a forest scene to a metropolitan scene. It allowed writers to put the character of MacGyver into a faster paced action and adventure series. For season seven, production returned to Los Angeles.
