Apparently, there’s a competition called, “The Next MacGyver” that is looking for a female version of the iconic 80’s hero to help promote engineering for women. AND APPARENTLY the competition is to write a TV series with a woman engineer as the protagonist-the 5 finalists get to go to Hollywood to pitch their screenplays AND get $5,000 AND get paired with TV and engineering mentors to develop their show.

As stated before Netflix has been dropping some serious awesome original material. And PART of that has been the keen eye they’ve given to casting. Well, they’ve done it again. Netflix has cast Elodie Yung as Elektra, you may remember her from G.I Joe: Retaliation, where she played Jinx, so her badassery is well proven. NOICE. Always great to see more up and comers cast in great roles.
