Wednesday, January 22, 2014 - Executives at America's NBC network have scrapped plans to revive Dame AngeLa Lansbury's popular TV series Murder, She Wrote.

Bosses at the network announced plans to revamp the mystery series last autumn , with Oscar-winner Octavia Spencer poised to take on Lansbury's iconic role of amateur detective Jessica Fletcher.

However, a source tells TheWrap.com that executives have now put the project on hold.

Lansbury, who voiced her opposition to the reboot, landed 12 Emmy nominations for her work on the series, which ran from 1984 to 1996. It spawned four TV movies as well as a spin-off series, The Law & Harry McGraw.
