Part of the opening title sequence for SCP-XXXX.

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: All physical recordings of SCP-XXXX are to be converted to digital files (DV-AVI Type 2). These files are to be stored in 3 separate flash-drives; each flash drive is to be kept in a secure TEMPEST-certified locker at an independent Foundation site. Once converted, all analog copies are to be incinerated.

Foundation agents monitoring flea-markets, yard-sales, and property auctions for anomalous activity are to be briefed on the existence of SCP-XXXX. Any analog tape suspected of containing partial or complete episodes of SCP-XXXX is to be purchased for review.

A Foundation-operated bot (I/O-MCGRAW) is to monitor online communities for discussions regarding the existence of SCP-XXXX. A joint operation involving MTF Mu-4 ("Debuggers") and MTF Gamma-5 ("Red Herrings") is to be conducted to investigate these discussions and determine whether the participants possess any recordings of SCP-XXXX. All recordings are to be recovered, and action is to be taken to discredit the existence of SCP-XXXX as a hoax or urban legend. Any screen captures or digital copies of SCP-XXXX are to be replaced with doctored images to further perpetuate this narrative.

Description: SCP-XXXX is the thirteenth season of Murder, She Wrote (an American television series that aired on CBS between 1984 and 1996). Outside of home recordings, no evidence (anecdotal or otherwise) of its production and subsequent broadcast exists.

Each episode has a run-time of approximately 50 minutes, and typically focuses on Jessica Fletcher (a mystery writer and amateur sleuth) as she attempts to solve one or more murders. Episodes start with a musical title sequence, and conclude with a series of still-frames from the episode, accompanied by credits and the opening theme.

Although previous seasons feature multiple locations around the world, every recovered episode of SCP-XXXX is set in Jessica Fletcher's home town of Cabot Cove, Maine (USA).
