This sort of stuff is right up the alley of the SyFy Channel and Ronald D. Moore!!
1. It isn't Science Fiction, so it would be right at home on the SyFy Channel!!
2. With "Murder" in the title, this series would have endless opportunities for blood and guts!! Just the sort of nonsense the SyFy Channel and Ronald D. Moore have always loved!!
3. Ronald D. Moore's love of "Rape" and other acts of thoroughly unnecessary violence within the boundaries of practically everything he writes or is associated with (in television) would fit in perfectly with a "Murder She Wrote" remake with a...."Modern Twist!!" As far as the SyFy Channel and Ronald D. Moore are concerned...badly written scripts with random acts of thoroughly unnecessary violence (disjointed segueing) that do absolutely nothing to advance the plot are..."dark, edgy, hip, modern, now, with it" (and in the case of "Murder She Wrote" would be)..."not your daddy's 'Murder She Wrote!!'"
4 The SyFy Channel is the "House of Flops" when it comes to remakes. "Battlestar Galactica", "Flash Gordon", etc. With Ronald D. Moore at the helm of a "Murder She Wrote" remake, he could pilot "Murder She Wrote" right to the depths of typical "Remake Floptitude" at the SyFy Channel!! And the SyFy Channel would be in familiar, comfortable territory with yet another "Remake Flop" from Ronald D. Moore!!
5. I see it plain as day!! A "Murder She Wrote" remake on the SyFy Channel would complete the "perfect sphere" of the SyFy Channel being a cable network about nothing in particular!! No on-air identity!! A channel about nothing specific!! "WWF Wrestling"..."Sharknado"...."Haunted Highway"..."Murder She Wrote!!"
The SyFy Channel's endless failed attempts at a "Smorgasbord Demographic Grab" must look like a "300 Mile Long, Zig-Zag Shaped Fishing Pole!!"
Read the books Universal Studios has tried and failed to censor on Amazon.com...
And read these books at another location where Universal Studios executives and its stealth marketers won't be able to post negative, misleading (stealth marketed) reviews of the books via them purchasing candy and Rogaine Foam on Amazon.com (allowing them access to the Amazon book review section) and not actually buying and reading the books. I'll leave the other 150 global locations under wraps for now.
