NBC has released a new two-and-a-half minute trailer for their upcoming “Hannibal,” based on the literary world created author Thomas Harris. Check it out in the player below!
The series looks at the early days of FBI agent Will Graham’s career and the time when he worked alongside Hannibal Lecter – naturally, before Graham realized Lecter was a cannibal. It appears the series is taking a few creative liberties, picking up with Graham being drawn back into the FBI game, which is where we saw him in Red Dragon/Manhunter, but in that book/film, Lecter had already been capture and Will was mentally exhausted/scarred by his time in the field.
David Slade directs the first episode which premieres April 4th.
