NBC Scrapping 'Murder She Wrote' Reboot

At the time the news broke it was also greeted by a deluge of negative sentiment. Because of this NBC will not be moving forward with the project, although there is a slim chance that the idea may be revisited in the future.

    The fictional "Cabot Cove" Maine setting for "Murder, She Wrote" is an actual harbor inlet in the town of Kennybunkport, Maine. The "Cabot Cove" is located on a main road leading from the township, with a bridge over the small inlet bay. Local motor-hotels and lobster-crab shack restaurants are nearby the cove, a short walk from the main village. The pilot episode town exteriors were filmed in Mendocino, California; subsequently, filming each season with a two hour (sometimes split airing as a two parter) show. The main (in town) Victorian mansion stood in for Jessica's house. The exterior Sheriff Station was the local Rangers Station. In 1992, this exterior was exchanged using a coastal bluff building on the main frontal street. Several small business shops were filmed for the exteriors of a beauty salon, a newspaper office, etc., with the "Hill House Hotel" utilizing the Mendocino town's largest hotel's exterior, grounds, parking, and interior lobby/check-in desk. The beach and bluff area filmed mainly for specific episodes. The Harbor of Fort Bragg was filmed for the docks, exterior pub/bar dressing decorated wharf buildings; interior restaurants above the harbor were also filmed as "Cabot Cove" sights. At Universal Studios' back lot, the Jaws Lake attraction was filmed as the exterior village. Actually, the show maintained the studio attraction's exterior buildings until cancellation in 1996, afterwards, falling into dis-repair. The exterior Victorian "Best Little Whirehouse" set, relocated from stage 12 feature filming, to a hill area on the back lot was a stand in for the Mendocino Victorian Jessica's house. The interiors of this house were filmed, redressed, repainted, redecorated, for many of the episodes for other story scenarios.
