OUT: U.S. TV Remakes: When NBC’s Murder She Wrote remake project imploded, fans of the classic show (and original series star Angela Lansbury, and anybody who watched NBC’s Ironside or Bionic Woman reboots) heaved a big sigh of relief. Amazingly, broadcasters only have one pilot right now based on a former U.S. TV series — CBS’s Odd Couple, starring Matthew Perry. But there are still plenty of others lurking in primordial stages of development and revamps of foreign TV formats remain hugely popular. So this recycling reprieve is likely only temporary.
