The lawyer for "Survivor" winner Richard Hatch said Wednesday that her client was taken to jail because he granted two TV interviews without getting the required permission from the Federal Bureau of Prisons. Hatch had been serving the remainder of his prison term for tax evasion on home confinement at his sister's home in Newport, R.I. He granted three television interviews this week -- to NBC's "Today" show, NBC affiliate WJAR-TV and the NBC-owned "Access Hollywood." The Bureau of Prisons would not comment on Hatch's case, but spokeswoman Traci Billingsley said prisoners on home confinement cannot grant interviews without first getting permission.

NBC has put a remake of that classic '80s TV staple "Murder, She Wrote" into development, but it turns out the show's original star, Angela Lansbury, isn't too pleased with the idea. Lansbury, who starred as murder-solving mystery writer Jessica Fletcher for 12 seasons and four TV movies on CBS, recently told the Associated Press she's a fan of actress Octavia Spencer, who's set to star in the remake; she just wishes they wouldn't use the name. Lansbury told the AP: "I think it's a mistake to call it 'Murder, She Wrote,' because 'Murder, She Wrote' will always be about a Cabot Cove and this wonderful little group of people who told those lovely stories and enjoyed a piece of that place, and also enjoyed Jessica Fletcher, who is a rare and very individual kind of person.

Everything is not coming up roses for the proposed big-screen remake of "Gypsy" that would have starred Barbra Streisand. Warner Bros. confirmed Monday that the project was no longer active there. No explanation was offered, but Arthur Laurents, who wrote the book for the original 1959 Broadway musical, told the Hartford Courant that he had withdrawn permission for it. Laurents, 93, who also has directed several Broadway revivals of the show, which features music by Jule Styne and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, said his decision had nothing to do with Streisand.

Reality TV star Richard Hatch, who spent more than three years behind bars for tax evasion, should go to jail for violating the conditions of his supervised release, federal prosecutors in Providence, R.I., recommended Monday. Hatch was convicted in 2006 of failing to pay taxes on the $1-million prize he won on the debut season of "Survivor," the CBS reality TV show. He was released from prison in 2009 and began serving a three-year term of supervised release. He was ordered to file amended tax returns for 2000 and 2001 as a condition of his release, which Hatch has failed to do. A judge this month found Hatch in violation of his supervised release but postponed a punishment until he could hear more arguments from both sides.
