Hannibal Lecter TV Series Headed to NBC

Posted: November 7th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Hannibal Lecter TV Series Headed to NBCSubmit Comment
We recently learned that Gaumont is working on a Hannibal Lecter television series that was expected to end up on a cable network like Showtime or HBO due to the violent nature of the character.

Deadline has now learned that the series was bought by NBC, which already ordered thirteen episodes. This means that there won't be a pilot episode and a struggle to get the show on air. It will head straight to series if NBC likes the script.

Written and produced by Bryan Fuller (Pushing Daisies), the new show will focus on the early years of Hannibal Lecter. And will obviously have to be toned down somewhat for the NBC audience.

4 episodes? You're mellowing with age my friend.

How about Hannibal meets Wonder Woman?

Apparently NBC has forgotten about: 'the violent nature of the character.' --- oh kids... leave the room, Hannibal is going to eat someone's guts again.

HOW do they plan on making this for a family network? This isn't risque' 2.5 Men stuff. This guy EATS PEOPLE!!!!

Oh, yes, we all need some toned down non-Anthony Hopkins Hannibal. Just what the audience was craving.
