*Deadline.com is reporting that NBC has opted not to move forward with its re-imagining of “Murder, She Wrote” — which had Oscar winner Octavia Spencer attached to star.

The project, from writer Alexandra Cunningham and producer David Janollari, got a lot of attention when it came together in October, receiving a put pilot commitment from the network.

A light, contemporary procedural, it was to follow a hospital administrator and amateur sleuth (Spencer) who self-publishes her first mystery novel.

Word is that NBC is not giving up on the reboot. “Because the original series was so beloved, I hear the network brass felt they could try approaching it in a different way, possibly with a new concept,” writes Deadline’s Nellie Andreeva. “The pass from NBC frees up Spencer, who is expected to be among the most sought-after actresses for pilots this season.”
