LOS ANGELES (AP) — Angela Lansbury says "it's a mistake" for NBC to call a new show "Murder, She Wrote."

The 88-year-old actress said she's a fan of Octavia Spencer, who is set to star in a rebooted version of the hit TV show, saying, "I wish her well, but I wish it wasn't in 'Murder, She Wrote.'"

Speaking to The Associated Press about the honorary Academy Award she'll accept in Los Angeles later this week, Lansbury said Sunday "Murder, She Wrote" was "the greatest doorway to the world" because of the international popularity of lead character Jessica Fletcher.

Lansbury was already a Tony-winning actress and three-time Oscar nominee when she joined the show, which aired from 1984 to 1996 and brought her worldwide acclaim.

Representatives for Spencer had no immediate comment.
