Bryan Fuller wrote the pilot script, which is a contemporary take on the Thomas Harris novel series that spawned the films Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal, and Red Dragon. The pilot takes us all the way back to the beginning of Will Graham and Hannibal Lecter's relationship.
It isn't known when shooting may begin on Hannibal, since Hugh Dancy is the first cast member to come on board. Bryan Fuller will executive produce the series alongside Martha De Laurentiis. The character Will Graham was previously played by Edward Norton in Red Dragon.
