Angela Lansbury says "it's a mistake" for NBC to call a new show Murder, She Wrote.
The 88-year-old actress said she's a fan of Octavia Spencer, who is set to star in a rebooted version of the hit TV show, saying, "I wish her well, but I wish it wasn't in Murder, She Wrote."
Speaking to the Associated Press about the honorary Academy Award she'll accept in Los Angeles later this week, Lansbury said Sunday Murder, She Wrote was "the greatest doorway to the world" because of the international popularity of lead character Jessica Fletcher.

Halle Berry isn't only expecting a baby with new husband Olivier Martinez at any moment now, but CBS says the Oscar winner will star in a serialized drama coming to the network next summer.
Berry, 47, will headline Extant, a 13-episode thriller. Berry will play an astronaut trying to reconnect with her family when she returns after a year in outer space. Her experiences lead to events that change the course of history.
The series is being made in partnership with Steven Spielberg's Amblin Television, which made last summer's surprise hit for CBS, Under the Dome.

Jerry O'Connell says he got "a little bit of a surprise" when he arrived on the set of his new sitcom, We Are Men, and took a look at his wardrobe – a collection of Speedos.
"It is probably the most nerve-wracking job for me to put those on every morning," O'Connell, 39, said at the 2013 CBS Summer TCA Press Tour, admitting that it's a turnaround from being known "as the fat kid from Stand By Me."
But the actor, whose show debuts Sept. 30 on CBS, says putting on the skimpy swimwear "is something that I have embraced. I have joined a gym. I have started drinking light beer. It is just something I am going to have to deal with in this role."

CBS is the warrior king of networks, and its upfront typically feels like the ritual unfurling of an illustrated tapestry of conquests.
This year's event included the cast of How I Met Your Mother, now heading into its final season, singing a parody of Les Misérables beneath yellow umbrellas on the Carnegie Hall stage.
David Letterman, who is now the official anti-Jimmy of late night, made a brief (and rare) appearance, and Robin Williams, a high-profile addition to the lineup with a new sitcom called The Crazy Ones, gave the crowd a few moments of fast-riffing standup. He mentioned prostitutes, cocaine, FOX News and the notoriously bizarre variety show Pink Lady and Jeff.
Here are three shows that struck me as keepers, at least for as long as the audience will have them.
