Why No New "Murder, She Wrote" TV Movie?

They did four from 1997-2003.

Angela Lansbury wants to do it, and doesn't understand why the network hasn't asked her.

She's 87. Come on, one last hurrah! The show has so many new fans, especially the younger generation. The show and the films were always a ratings success.

What's going on?

Why do I not recall the movies?

Because you're a cunt, r1. ;)

Her constant sulfurous farting makes any collaborator wary.

"Please, Great-Great-Great-Great Aunt Jessica, help us find this murderer!"

"The show has so many new fans, especially the younger generation."

There's only one younger generation after the original fans of that show?

r5, just stop.

The films were just brought out on DVD.

When MSW was cancelled it was still very popular and had a large audience. CBS cancelled it because the viewers were too old (i.e., outside of the 18 - 49 target).

I am kind of pissed at Hallmark because they moved it off of their daytime schedule for their stupid made for TV holiday movies.

In addition to the campy fun of watching Ann Blyth revealed as Ann Southern's killer, you think the producers were aware that some of us gay guys also watched the show for Grady's bulge and perfectly shaped bubble butt?

R10 I hated Grady's wife.

I watched it also for the hot deputy from Cabot Cove (who was in the latest season of True Blood as crazy wolf pack leader high on vamp blood).

I'd figure someone would greenlight a couple of movies, before ... you know, Angela solves murders in heaven (because they only would let her in when she pretends to be J.B. Fletcher for the purpose to solve murder cases in heaven).

Today's teens are just snapping up the "Murder, She Wrote" DVDs in droves! It's the hiottest thing in America's high schools!

They should do a "Who Killed JB Fletcher?" TV movie.

Jessica is found murdered at a mystery writers convention. Old and frail she had attended the conference with Grady's adopted son (Grady finally came out of the closet)... let's make the grandson hispanic or asian (for diversity).

Angela Lansbury will appear in flashbacks from the convention where she interacts with a number of writers and fans and foes (think of the casting opportunites!).

Said adopted grandson must solve the case. What's his name? Myles? Brandon?

Grady and his husband will arrive to assist is sleuthing.

So, who murdered the beloved JB?

Richard Castle? Jessica had final approval at casting for a TV movie of her books and she refused to let Richard's mother get cast.

Grady's ex-wife (she has never forgiven Jessica for siding with Grady when he came out of the closet and later presided over Grady's nuptuals)?

THINK, DL, THINK! write screen play! Better yet, make this post a thread of its own!

Because 85% of the people who'd want to see it have already died.

Actually ratings dropped the last season because CBS moved the show from Sunday to Thursday. Lansbury was very upset and publicly expressed her anger about what CBS had done to the show.

Angela is about to travel to Australia to do a production of "Driving Miss Daisy" with James earl Jones! You can't say she's lazy now can you? I'm really shocked that an 87 year old has the stamina to memorize ANY lines at all, or do even a six show week! Good for her. In case she lives, I would be delighted to see Angela do one last Murder She Wrote tv movie, I think it would be fun. If they put it o Sunday Night, the ratings would be huge.

MSW got down with the kids thanks to Tumblr and Youtube. It became the show of many memes. People 25 and under are big fans today. Netflix also has the entire series available for everyone to watch.
