So, who here remembers the classic writer's show Murder, She Wrote starring Ms. Angela Lansbury? The show was on from 1984-1996 and several TV movies followed in 1997-2003. I grew up on Murder, She Wrote (Father Dowling Mysteries followed as a close second in my families favorite TV shows to watch together).
For those that never watched, MSW featured the mystery novelist Jessica Fletcher who solved a murder once a week. The joke became that it probably wasn't good to consider Jessica as a friend, because you would either be murdered or accused of committing a murder and Jessica would rush in to solve the crime. I recently rewatched the final seasons of MSW on Netflix and was quickly sucked into the various cases that Jessica solved. Some of my favorite episodes revolved around her trying to meet a deadline for a book, either to write or revise, and someone getting knocked off and completely interrupting her schedule. :-)
What about you? What's your favorite TV show or movie that features a writer as the protagonist?
