I'm afraid they're going to go too edgy with Murder, She Wrote by making her a lesbian pop singer or something who writes books and solves crimes.
They're making her an African-American "hospital administrator and amateur sleuth... who self-publishes her first mystery novel." I guess the self-publishing thing is trying to be trendy.
The premise for MURDER SHE WROTE stretches credibility to the breaking point, at least for the original series. 22 times each year for 12 years the same woman just happens to be in the vicinity of one murder virtually seven days. I long ago came to the conclusion that the 264 ''murderers'' were framed and Jessica Fletcher was guilty as hell.
Yep, that's a popular theory, Jessica Fletcher as the world's most brilliant serial killer. Although it still doesn't explain why anyone was still willing to invite
her anywhere after a while...
