The first trailer for Bryan Fuller (Pushing Daisies, Heroes) new small screen take on Hannibal Lector hit earlier today. It’s short and doesn’t give away a lot, but given it’s coming from Fuller, i’d say it’s one to keep an eye on!
Hannibal stars Hugh Dancy (Black Hawk Down, Adam) as Will Graham, a gifted criminal profiler who seeks out help from psychiatrist Lector (Mads Mikkelsen – Casino Royale) to catch a serial killer… Of course, unknown to Graham, Dr. Lector has a much more intimate knowledge of a serial killers mind than the profiler realises…
The show also stars Laurence Fishburne as Graham’s boss, Special Agent Jack Crawford. Interesting side note – Fishburne took over as lead on tv juggernaut CSI from William Petersen, who played Will Graham in Lector’s first film outing, the brilliant ‘Manhunter’.
Hannibal airs on NBC in the US April 4th 2013. No news on a UK air date yet, but keep your eye on the Hannibal TV show page for info when we get it!
