“Hannibal,” based on the Thomas Harris novels “Red Dragon,” “The Silence of the Lambs,” ‘Hannibal” and “Hannibal Rising,” stars Hugh Dancy as expert criminal profiler Will Graham, who has a unique ability to peer into the mind of serial killers. Mads Mikkelsen stars as Dr. Hannibal Lecter, a psychiatrist who is helping with the cases and is also a serial killer himself.
In addition to Fuller, Martha De Laurentiis, Jesse Alexander, Chris Brancato, Sara Colleton, Katie O’Connell, Elisa Roth, Sidonie Dumas and Christophe Riandee also serve as executive producers. The series is produced by Gaumont International Television, Dino De Laurentiis Company and Living Dead Guy Productions, and co-commissioned internationally by Sony Pictures Television Networks.
“Hannibal” returns to NBC Thursday, June 4 at 10pm, immediately after the network’s brand new series, “Aquarius.” On beyond the similar thematic elements, “Aquarius” should pair nicely with “Hannibal” as it stars Anderson’s “The X-Files” co-star, David Duchovny.
