Hannibal: Coming to NBC

by at . Comments

NBC has has skipped the pilot stage and given a straight-to-series order of Hannibal, a Bryan Fuller-produced drama about a certain, iconic serial killer.


The drama, written and produced by Fuller (Pushing Diaeies), will reportedly be a modern take on the Thomas Harris novel "Red Dragon." It will therefore kick off at the outset of FBI agent Will Graham’s relationship with Dr. Hannibal Lecter.

And we all know what happens from there, don't we? Someone pass the fava beans.

Will you tune in for Hannibal? And what do you think of NBC simply ordering up 13 episodes prior to casting either of the main roles?

    Thanks for creating Tidy Archives, it's ecaxtly what I'm looking for.I do need it to do one thing, and Ive been trying to modify it for a little while, but now Im stuck.I'm able to modify the plugin enough so that the archives display according to my projects style guidelines, but I need to show the actual post date of each article. I think I need to add something to line 53 of your code to get the article post date to display, is this something you can assist with?Either way, great plugin, thanks for taking the time to develop it.Hope you're well.
