NBC has given series orders to “Hannibal,” a 13-episode drama from “Pushing Daisies”‘ Bryan Fuller featuring the classic characters from Thomas Harris’ novel “Red Dragon,” reports THR.
“Hannibal,” from Gaumont International Television, is described as an hourlong contemporary thriller featuring characters from Harris’ best-seller and revolves around FBI agent Will Graham and his mentor, Dr. Hannibal Lecter, who are reintroduced as the beginning of their budding relationship.
Lecter was made famous in the 1991 The Silence of the Lambs which landed Anthony Hopkins an Oscar.
Fuller is also working on the delayed “Mockingbird Lane,” a reboot of “The Munsters.”
