4.0 out of 5 stars A Must Buy for any Murder, She Wrote / Columbo Fan, 11 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Me and Murder, She Wrote (Paperback)
Being a big fan of the series "Murder, She Wrote" made purchasing this book a no-brainer - and I was not disappointed.

Having seen the name Peter S. Fischer on numerous episodes of the show as a co-creator, writer, and executive producer, it was interesting to learn about his career and how it all began. He started quite late in the business and made his way up - his career story makes a good read and is pretty inspiring, and covers the 1970s to the 1990s. Along the way there are stories of some of the stars of the period - Telly Savalas, Robert Urich, Glenn Ford, Jerry Orbach, and Peter Falk are just a few of the names, and the anecdotes and remembrances made this a page turner for me.

The pages covering "Murder, She Wrote" do not disappoint - there is lots of background to the formation of the show, stories about meetings, the co-creators Richard Levinson and William Link (they also did "Columbo" together, as well as a show I'd love to watch one day, "Ellery Queen"; lots of entertaining stuff about those shows is covered also), the production, guest stars, and of course the star, the newly Dame Angela Lansbury.

So for anyone who is a fan of those series, this book is definitely recommended, but the book should also appeal to anyone interested in 70s/80s Hollywood TV production, as well as those aspiring writers out there.

"Me and Murder, She Wrote" makes a most enjoyable and informative read.

5.0 out of 5 stars HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - MUST READ, 7 Mar. 2014
By 
BLUE FISH (UNITED KINGDOM) - See all my reviews
Found this book most interesting, especially as it dates back to the 60s/70s and how we associate jessica fletcher with the book and the television series, interesting to read about the person behind the book and how Murder She Wrote came to be.
