In CBS' "Marple", the hat-loving old lady with propensity for solving crimes is being significantly aged down. (Can anyone imagine a commercial network launching a series with an octogenarian female lead in this youth-obsessed day and age?) After inheriting her grandmother's bookstore and realizing that things in this small California town aren't what they seem, a young woman begins working as a private investigator to get to the bottom of the town's mysteries.

Agatha Christie's Marple (or simply Marple) is a British ITV television series loosely based on the books and short stories by British crime novelist Agatha Christie. The title character was played by Geraldine McEwan from the first to third series, until her retirement from the role, and by Julia McKenzie from the fourth series onwards. Following the conclusion of the sixth series, it was announced that the BBC had acquired the rights for the production of Agatha Christie adaptations, suggesting that ITV would be unable to make a seventh series of Marple.
