NBC is definitely capitalizing on the fact that the audience who will watch theTV series next month are very familiar with the notorious serial killer, Dr. Lecter, by using clever tag lines like “His name may ring a bell” and “Before the world feared his name / He had a beginning” in a string of new promos released thus far.
We just got our hands on three newclips, and they all pretty much focus on the brand that Dr. Lecter created in the films. Nothing new for us to take in here, but at least from the graphic imagery seen in the clips, NBC is promising to broadcast a gory new TV series with Hannibal, which premieres April 4th at 10 PM.
The first season for the Mads Mikkelsen, Laurence Fishburne, and Hugh Dancy-starring series has received a 13 episode order, and unlike most U.S. network shows, future seasons will also feature 13 episodes. The pilot was produced and directed by David Slade, and so far Hannibal seems like it is going to be a hit with this talented cast. Do you agree? Have your say in the comments section below.
