Then, I heard Bryan Fuller was behind it. Then, MM was playing Hannibal and Hugh Dancy was playing Will Graham and Lawrence Fishburne, Caroline Dhavernas (Yeeeeeeesss!) and Gina Torres signed on too and I got all excited. I mean, honestly, I was in once I heard Mikkelsen signed on because he is my actor kryptonie, but I dig the trailer. Plus, The Following sucks and Dexter is a hot fucking mess, so I need something to fulfill my creepy show vacancy.
Via The Playlist:
The great Mads Mikkelsen playing the iconic Dr. Hannibal Lecter alone would have been enough, but we’ve also been encouraged by what producer Bryan Fuller has had to say about the show. “Hannibal” will follow the cable model of a 13-episode first season, with the title character’s murderous nature to be revealed within two seasons – after which the structure of the show would dramatically change (given it gets that far, of course). Fuller apparently pitched a seven-season arc to NBC, which will please viewers who normally have to approach network dramas with a "I know they’re making this up as they go along" approach.
ETA: Apologies if there's a thread about this already. I did a search and didn't find anything.
