I'm hearing of a Murder She Wrote reboot. A hospital administrator writes her first book and her mystery solving is launched.

I'm very interested in this show, but worried I may drop even this information from my brain, or miss any new info about it. If you hear anything, will you post it, times and channels, and dates.

I read about this in the paper yesterday and found this on the web tonight. The remake of the Ironside series with Blair Underwood has already been canceled. Octavia Spencer is scheduled to play the lead and, while she's a good actress, I don't know if this sequel will work. But who knows, she may just pull it off. Here is another link.

Might be a little Murder She Wrote, some female Castle, Nancy Drew, and Elementary.

Sounds like it has more in common with Diagnosis Murder than Murder She Wrote, and really very little with either. Another case of stealing the title for name recognition only? Bah!

Both those original shows are favorites of mine. The new one might have interested me more if it had presented itself as an original show.

You can never make a classic as good as or better than the original IMHO.. However as long as the show is good I don't care how closely it follows or imitates.. I loved Murder She Wrote.. so I kinda look forward to seeing this..

I think TV is losing viewers and wants to bring back old shows people enjoyed watching years ago.

I wish the show's producers luck.I can't see myself watching reboot shows,unless the acting and plot is very good. In the past there were reboot movies I didn't enjoy either.

Don't know if you know this, but the Hallmark movie channel has been re-running the original "Murder She Wrote" for months now.

As much as I enjoyed this series, I'm glad the re-make has been scrapped. I agree with this post that it should be avoided. Some TV series/movies should be left alone.
