Hannibal Promo

Inside the Mind of a Killer

NBC has released the first official TV Spot for their Hannibal TV Series. It will be interesting to see how they develop the both Hannibal and Graham over the series. What changes will they make and how far they can go will be an interesting twist on what we already know. 

The Plot: The series, from Pushing Daisies creator Bryan Fuller, revolves around brilliant FBI profiler Will Graham -- the protagonist of Harris' 1981 novel Red Dragon -- played here by Hugh Dancy. Graham joins agent Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne) on the hunt for a serial killer who, among other things, impales his victims on deer antlers.

The series premieres on April 4th, 2013 on NBC.

 I don't know, it made 2 pretty decent 2 hour movies (both "Manhunter" and "Red Dragon" have their good qualities and their flaws, IMO), but I don't see a series going over as well.  I could be wrong.

I am wondering if they are trying to write this series to fit into the world of Hannibal we already know, or if they are basically starting from scratch.  I hope they are starting from scratch, as then I could see them developing out that relationship, and working towards finding out who Hannibal really is.  They could still paint themselves into a corner though.  I don't know if they can pull it off or not.  The actor playing Hannibal I think will be key.  Everyone views Anthony Hopkins as him these days, so he has to do a really good job with the character or it will fall flat

 I assume they are semi-starting from scratch, considering it looks like it will take place in present day, despite Red Dragon taking place around 1985.  Could the first season end with Will Graham figuring out that Hannibal Lector is a serial killer all along?  Seems like a natural way to make the season end on a cliffhanger.

 They announced already that the series is based on "Red Dragon".  IF that is true, then Lecter should be incarcerated the entire time.

It's before Red Dragon. When Hannibal was helping him catch killers all the while killing people himself.

I'll give it a look if the producers can make the FBI agent/profiler look less like a bum and if that very bad music is not involved.

Dexter imitation rip off.
