Over the weekend NBC dropped the first television spot for its highly anticipated upcoming series HANNIBAL on us and if you didn't catch it when it aired, fret not for we have it for you below.
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…
The Bryan Fuller-produced drama is being billed as a contemporary take on the characters from Thomas Harris’ “Red Dragon” novel that focuses on the fledgling relationship between FBI agent Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) and Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen). Laurence Fishburne plays Agent Jack Crawford. Other key cast members include Lance Henriksen (NEAR DARK), Gillian Anderson (“X-Files”), Gina Torres (“Firefly”), Caroline Dhavernas and Ellen Muth.
UPDATE: We also got our grubby lil hands on the poster for the series, which you can check out right here:
HANNIBAL will debut on NBC April 4th at 10 PM.
