Written and executive produced by Jenny Lumet and Alex Kurtzman, Clarice sees Rebecca Breeds taking over the role of the title character. The series is 

set in 1993, one year after the events of The Silence of the Lambs. It tells the personal story of FBI Agent Clarice Starling as she returns to the field to pursue serial murderers and sexual predators while navigating the high-stakes political world of Washington, D.C.

Breeds is joined in the cast by Kal Penn as Emin Grigoryan, "an agent with a Ph.D. in library science"; Michael Cudlitz as Paul Krendler, "leader of the VICAP Fly Team"; Nick Sandow as Murray Clarke, "Clarice's chief hazer"; Lucca De Oliveira as Tomas Esquivel, "who attended Dartmouth on an ROTC scholarship and became a counter-sniper during Operation Desert Storm"; Devyn A. Tyler as Ardelia Mapp, "Clarice's closest friend and her roommate at the FBI Academy"; Marnee Carpenter as Catherine Martin, "who was saved from Buffalo Bill's basement by Clarice"; Jayne Atkinson as Ruth Martin, "the newly appointed attorney general and Catherine's mother"; Shawn Doyle as "Clarice's therapist at Quantico"; and Tim Guinee as Novak, "the leader of a secessionist militia group".

Elizabeth Klaviter serves as showrunner and executive produces alongside Lumet, Kurtzman, and Heather Kadin. Aaron Baiers is co-executive producer. Clarice is coming to us from MGM Television and CBS Studios, in association with Secret Hideout.

The Silence of the Lambs was based on a novel by Thomas Harris, which you can purchase a copy of at THIS LINK.
