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?
