(Newser) Murder, She Wrote is getting a rewrite—or, rather, a reboot. Deadline Hollywood first reported NBC would launch a re-imagining of the long-running CBS series. The 1980s crime show starred the iconic Angela Lansbury as Jessica Fletcher, a mystery writer who doubled as a detective. True fans might think there’s no replacing Lansbury, but NBC’s betting on Oscar winner Octavia Spencer to bring back the brand.

I really loved Octavia Spencer in "The Help," but leave "Murder, She Wrote" alone. Good grief can't Hollywood think up anything new? Does everything have to be a rehash? It will be doomed to failure.
