Murder, She Wrote is an American television mystery series starring Angela Lansbury as mystery writer and amateur detective Jessica Fletcher.[1][2]

The series aired for 12 seasons with 264 episodes from 1984-96 on the CBS network. It was followed by four TV films and a short-lived spin-off series was produced in 1987, The Law & Harry McGraw, starring Jerry Orbach and Barbara Babcock, both of whom made numerous appearances (the former as Harry McGraw; the latter in various episodes in different roles).[3] It is one of the most successful and longest-running television shows in history, with close to 23 million viewers in its prime, and was a staple of the CBS Sunday night lineup for a decade.[4] In syndication, the series is still successful throughout the world.
