Oh, we just knew Angela Lansbury secretly controlled one or more television networks. We knew it. While the Iron Fist of Lansbury came down way back in November, NBC didn't axe Octavia Spencer's Murder, She Wrote reboot until today. Deadline reports that the network has opted not to go forward with the remake, though it might "try approaching it in a different way, possibly with a new concept." Ten bucks says the new concept involves Angela Lansbury slipping right back into her role as Jessica Fletcher.
