[show]Although set on the East Coast of America, Jessica's home in Cabot Cove, Maine, was filmed on the West Coast, in Mendocino, California, and the Universal Studios back-lot in Los Angeles. The location filming in Mendocino utilized the Blair House Inn Bed And Breakfast as the exterior of Jessica Fletcher's house. It was built in 1888 for Elisha Blair and his family by Oliver Johnson, a local builder. Due to the amount of filming that took place at the location for the series, a VIP room was renamed as Angela's Suite and a replica of Jessica's bike is in the garden. Many other locations purporting to be in New England were filmed in Oregon and Northern California. Other productions filmed in Mendocino include: East Of Eden, Karate Kid 3 and Forever Young.
- The show's title is a reference to the Miss Marple mystery Murder She Said (1961), which was based on a novel by Agatha Christie.
