USC, National Academy of Engineering Ties With TV Series Creator To Find Female

Can a TV show convince more females to pursue an education and career in engineering and science? A new effort, driven by the USC Viterbi School of Engineering, the National Academy of Engineering (NAE), and Lee Zlotoff, the creator of MacGyver, is hoping to create a new TV series--called "The Next MacGyver"--which will star and feature stories about women engineers. The group has been running a contest--with finals at the end of July--to help surface ideas for that TV series. The group says it will help connect its winners with Hollywood TV producers and engineering experts in developing their pilot scripts.
