Having received a full thirteen episode series order based on the strength of its pilot episode directed by David Slade (30 DAYS OF NIGHT), NBC's "Hannibal" is well on its way insofar as filming goes.  Now technically that thirteen episode series order is, considering the network on which the show will air, only a half-season - meaning you can look for "Hannibal" to first hit sometime in early 2013

Meanwhile there are the pictures.  They're not very much to go on, but even from these few scant glimpses alone I find myself reassured that Hugh Dancy was a very solid choice for the part of FBI Agent Will Graham - everything from his clothes to the way he holds himself reminds me of William Petersen in MANHUNTER, and I like that idea very much indeed.  Mikkelsen is of course gleefully off even just in the one photo, and I can't wait to see the performance he's rocking for this particular character.  More as we hear it and that premiere episode's air date draws closer.

So what do you think? Based on these pictures, are you digging what series creator Brian Fuller is cooking up?

Extra Tidbit: I'm awfully curious about how they'll first show Hannibal living up to his "cannibal" moniker. He's certainly eating a lot in these photos.

I love Mads for his work in Pusher but I reserve judgement on this.

The lead's relationship with industry darling and paint by numbers "twists" leader Homeland lead Claire Danes throws up flags. This will get every helping hand and be on forever regardless of the quality.

So I'm glad they're so confident about it. I assume Fishburne is playing Crawford? I just really want to see Mads Mikkelsen in action as Lecter, just like everyone else.

I will watch this show, and yes Hannibal was around first but I'm getting a toned down version of Dexter feel from this. I think Mikkelsen is the real selling point for this show, at least for me it is.
