HANNIBAL - New Poster and Character Photos
NBC has released a promo poster, and some character photos for Bryan Fuller's Hannibal TV series. The show is based on the cannibalistic serial killer Hannibal Lecter. It stars Mads Mikkelsen as the title character, Hugh Dancy as FBI agent Will Graham, Laurence Fishburne as his boss Jack Crawford, and Gillian Anderson as Lecter's psychiatrist. The new photos give us a look at some of the other characters that we'll see in the show.
The pilot episode was directed by David Slade and the series will follow Graham as he tries to solve a series of murders and enlists the help of brilliant psychiatrist Dr. Lecter... unaware the good doctor is secretly a cannibalistic killer. Fuller (Pushing Daisies, Dead Like Me) wrote and is producing the series.
Will Graham is a gifted criminal profiler who is on the hunt for a serial killer with the FBI. Graham's unique way of thinking gives him the astonishing ability to empathize with anyone - even psychopaths. He seems to know what makes them tick. But when the mind of the twisted killer he's pursuing is too complicated for even Will to comprehend, he enlists the help of Dr. Lecter, one of the premier psychiatric minds in the country. Armed with the uncanny expertise of the brilliant doctor, Will and Hannibal (known as a serial killer only to the audience) form a brilliant partnership and it seems there's no villain they can't catch. If Will only knew...
NBC has ordered 13 episodes for the first season, and it will premiere on April 4th, 2013. To watch the first promo teaser for the show, click here.
