‘MacGyver’ & ‘Magnum P.I.’ EP Peter Lenkov Fired By CBS

CBS Television Studios has parted ways with top showrunner Peter Lenkov.

A spokesperson for the studio just released the following statement:

“Peter Lenkov is no longer the executive producer overseeing MacGyver and Magnum P.I., and the Studio has ended its relationship with him. Monica Macer will be the showrunner on MacGyver, and Eric Guggenheim will run Magnum P.I. Both are currently executive producers on their respective series. Our Studio is committed to ensuring safe and respectful production environments. Over the past year, we have assigned human resource production partners to every show, expanded staff training and increased reporting options. We will continue to evolve our practices with continued focus on building trust with all who work on our sets. Every complaint is taken seriously, every claim is investigated, and when evidence is clear that policies were violated and values not upheld, we take decisive action.”

Lenkov was let go with a year left on his overall deal with CBS TV Studios, which produces MacGyver and Magnum P.I. Lenkov had been based at the studio for more than a decade.
