And you thought you were going to have to wait till Saturday night like everyone else to see the first footage for HANNIBAL. You know I wouldn’t let that happen. I’ve got it for you right here, right now.
As I told you earlier this week, the series premieres on Thursday April 4th at 10 PM and is going to take us back into the world of Hannibal Lector during the Will Graham era of the Lector saga. The official synopsis from the network is like this:
One of the most fascinating literary characters comes to life on television for the first time: psychiatrist-turned-serial killer Dr. Hannibal Lecter. In this new drama from Bryan Fuller (“Pushing Daisies,” “Heroes”) based on the characters from Thomas Harris’ classic novels, we see where this incredible story began.
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…
