I haven’t been this excited for a show since The Walking Dead. Hannibal premieres on NBC on April 4th at 10 p.m. The show is based on the Hannibal Lecter series. I absolutely loved Silence of the Lambs and the Red Dragon. After watching the trailer for Hannibal, I think NBC may have found a winner for the time slot that was once occupied by ER. Check it out.
“Hannibal” Star Hugh Dancy as Special Agent Will Graham
A former homicide detective turned teacher, Will Graham is pulled into the dark world of criminal profiling by Jack Crawford to help catch some of the most demented serial killers known to man. Socially awkward, but a brilliantly gifted, Graham navigates his way through the dark amalgam of haunting cases—guided by his FBI-appointed psychologist, Hannibal Lecter. Graham is constantly on guard against being consumed by the darkness he confronts on each case.
An accomplished psychologist, and sociopathic serial killer, at the height of his career. Dr. Lecter is assigned to be Will Graham’s psychiatrist, helping navigate the increasingly disturbing cases Graham encounters, while gaining unprecedented access to the FBI for himself. Excepting his homicidal tendencies, Dr. Lecter is every bit the gentleman, with his impeccable wit, astonishing intellect, gourmet pallet and eye for the more refined aspects of life.“Hannibal” Star Mads Mikkelsen as Dr. Hannibal Lecter
Head of the FBI’s Behavioral Science Unit, Jack Crawford is laser-focused on his mission to apprehend the most vicious serial killers known to man. His unstoppable drive and dogged determination sometimes cause him to lose sight of the wellbeing of his team, particularly his most valuable weapon, Will Graham, who Crawford keeps on a tight leash. It also constantly threatens the delicate balance he strikes between his professional and personal life.“Hannibal” Star Laurence Fishburne as Agent Jack Crawford
