Murder, She Wrote is dead…but we don't need a detective to get to the bottom of its demise. NBC has decided to not go forward with its proposed reboot of the classic TV series following an amateur sleuth, E! News has confirmed.
Deadline first reported the news.
The procedural, which was announced in October, had Oscar winner Octavia Spencer attached to star as a hospital administrator who self-publishes a mystery novel. Angela Lansbury starred in the original Murder, She Wrote for 12 seasons from 1984 to 1996.
