“Pushing Daisies” creator Bryan Fuller didn’t have a whole lot of luck with “Mockingbird Lane”, his “Munsters” reboot that has been turned into a one-shot TV special by NBC. Hopefully he’ll have better luck with “Hannibal”, based on the serial killer character made famous by Anthony Hopkins in “Silence of the Lambs” and the two sequels. The TV show stars former Bond bad guy Mads Mikkelsen (“Casino Royale”) as Hannibal, with Hugh Dancy as FBI agent Will Graham. Check out your first looks at the two men from the show.
The show will explore the early relationship between Hannibal, a renowned psychiatrist and his patient, young FBI criminal profiler Will Graham, who is haunted by his ability to empathize with serial killers. Eventually, Hannibal assists Graham on his cases, before succumbing to his own dark urges. Fuller himself has revealed that this won’t take very long, that possibly by the end of the first season Hannibal and Graham will be hunting each other instead of other serial killers.
“Hannibal” co-stars Caroline Dhavernas, Lara Jean Chorostecki, Aaron Abrams, Laurence Fishburne, Hettienne Park, and Scott Thompson.
