Engaging Animal Character
4 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

This episode of Murder She Wrote has Jessica Fletcher branching out so to speak. She's gone into the business of writing a children's book with an engaging animal character who is a policeman. Now she's dealing with television who would like to give her character a show.

If Angela Lasnbury thought the publishing business could be cutthroat wait till she has to deal with the various egos involved with television. Stephen Kay who at times is almost childlike himself like Michael Jackson is the host of a current show who'd like to get Lansbury to collaborate with him. Kay is woeful as a business person.

A security guard is killed preventing someone from stealing a prototype puppet and notes on the character. Kay looks good, but we know it won't be him.

Who'd have thought kid's television could be so nasty?
