Directed by Corey Allen. With Angela Lansbury, Eddie Barth, Jessica Browne, Bert Convy. Former English teacher Jessica Fletcher travels to New York to celebrate the success of her debut novel, but when an unwanted guest is murdered at a costume party, she wishes she'd stayed home.
A generally entertaining pilot episode, but there were several painfully obvious moments that played out over a much longer time frame than they should have. Interesting to see Ned Beatty doing television here and playing the dumb detective. Seeing Bert Convey was entertaining as I hadn’t thought about him for decades.
