NBC Rebooting 'Murder, She Wrote' with Octavia Spencer!
The 43-year-old actress will play the role of Jessica Fletcher, made famous by Angela Lansbury from 1984-1996!
David Janollari and Alexandra Cunningham are set to executive produce the drama, which will have “a light, contemporary feel,” according to the network.
Angela‘s character was an “astute amateur detective,” and the hour long series has received a pilot commitment from NBC.
The series “follows a hospital administrator and amateur sleuth (Spencer) who self-publishes her first mystery novel. Set in a day where sensational headlines inundate the news, this woman’s avid fascination with true crime leads her to become an active participant in the investigations.”
