Angela Lansbury Calls Murder She Wrote Reboot a "Mistake"

NBC is planning a remake of Murder She Wrote, but the series' original star Angela Lansbury is calling the whole thing a "mistake." She tells the AP, "I think it's a mistake to call it Murder She Wrote because Murder She Wrote will always be about a Cabot Cove and this wonderful little group of people who told those lovely stories and enjoyed a piece of that place." The 88-year-old Hollywood veteran goes on to say that she has nothing against the remake's new star, Octavia Spencer, but she wishes she wasn't in the new version of the show!
