NBC gives "Hannibal" a straight-to-series, 13 episode order!

02.16.2012by: Jared Pacheco

Way back in November we passed along the news that work had begun on a new NBC series based on the one and only 'Hannibal Lecter.' More specifically the series would be based on the novel RED DRAGON. But like any new series "Hannibal" wasn't exactly greenlit from the get-go... But it is now!

According to Deadline Hollywood NBC has picked up 13-episodes of the straight-to-series project, which was written and executive produced by Bryan Fuller and executive produced by Martha DeLaurentiis. The pick-up was soley based on Fuller's script, which NBC dug enough to give it a go. Sounds like a good sign to me!

The project is described as a contemporary thriller series featuring the classic characters from Thomas Harris’ novel Red Dragon – FBI agent Will Graham and his mentor Dr. Hannibal Lecter – who are re-introduced at the beginning of their budding relationship.

Now unfortunately there's no telling when things will get rolling with "Hannibal" but you can bet any other updates we hear will be passed right along to all of you.

The DeLaurentiis' = Whores.

'Nuff said. I feel sorry for Harris, as if Hannibal Rising wasn't awful enough, his greatest creation will turn into a complete pop culture bad joke when this show hits.

This is a bad idea to begin with, let alone with Fuller's meddling.
