The #1 TV Drama for 9 Consecutive Years!
A new chapter begins as Season One of TV's most popular and widely acclaimed detective series, Murder, She Wrote, comes home to DVD for the first time ever! Angela Lansbury stars in the role that earned her 12 consecutive Emmy nominations as everyone's favorite super-sleuth, Jessica Fletcher, a famous mystery writer who has a knack for solving murders on and off the page.

Along with the quirky residents of Cabot Cove, Maine, Jessica is joined in her deliciously suspicious tales of mystery and mayhem by some of the most celebrated guest stars of screen and stage, including Jerry Orbach, Leslie Nielsen, Joaquin Phoenix, Andy Garcia, Martin Landau, Milton Berle, Peter Graves, Vicki Lawrence and many more. Investigate all 21 Season One episodes and the suspenseful original pilot movie, The Murder of Sherlock Holmes, of the illustrious and thrilling series that will have you guessing "whodunit" until the very end.

This three disc collection includes all 21 episodes from The Complete First Season of Murder, She Wrote!

Editor's Note
Wildly popular for its entire 12 year run, MURDER, SHE WROTE is one of the most successful mystery shows of all-time. Angela Lansbury stars as Jessica Fletcher, a widowed mystery writer who stumbles across a murder in each episode, and cleverly deduces who the criminal is before anyone else can. Although the show followed a formula, the pleasure came from investigating the crime along with Jessica, and from Lansbury's charming portrayal of the amateur sleuth; she was nominated for an astonishing 12 Emmys for her role. Aside from the awards, Lansbury's performance was also groundbreaking, for MURDER, SHE WROTE was one of the very first (and still one of the few) American television programs to feature an older woman in the lead role. THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON contains the pilot movie THE MURDER OF SHERLOCK HOLMES and all 21 episodes from the premier year. It features many guest stars from the classical era of film and television, including Martin Landau, Peter Graves, Jose Ferrer, Milton Berle, and many others.

Entertainment Weekly
"[C]hock full of charm....The plot twists are delightful and the cavalcade of guest stars can't be beat..." 04/01/2005 p.56-57

Home Theater Info 9 of 10
While so many television networks pander to the all too often puerile tastes of the younger viewers, CBS saw fit to present several series geared towards the older members of the audience. One of the most notable of these mystery series was Murder, She Wrote. As many television shows moved towards the edge, frequently pushing the boundaries of what was acceptable this series started out always tasteful and remained such through out the almost dozen years it was on the air. This in itself was quite an accomplishment, quality television that lasted through the years.
