TV show description:      
Set in Baltimore, this thriller series is based on the series of novels by Thomas Harris and brings psychiatrist-turned-serial-killer, Hannibal Lecter, to television for the first time.

Special Agent Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) is a gifted FBI criminal profiler who is on the hunt for a serial killer. Graham’s unique way of thinking gives him the ability to empathize with anyone — even psychopaths. He seems to know what makes them tick.

When the mind of the twisted killer that he’s pursuing is too complicated for Will to comprehend, he enlists the help of Doctor Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen), one of the premier psychiatric minds in the country. Armed with the uncanny expertise of the brilliant doctor, Will and Hannibal (known as a serial killer only to the audience) form a brilliant partnership and it seems there’s no villain they can’t catch.

Others on Graham’s side are Special Agent Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne), Graham’s boss and the head of Behavioral Sciences at the FBI; Doctor Alana Bloom (Caroline Dhavernas), a psychology professor and consultant profiler for the FBI; crime scene investigator Brian Zeller (Aaron Abrams); Beverly Katz (Hettienne Park), a crime scene investigator who specializes in fiber analysis; and Jimmy Price (Scott Thompson), a crime scene investigator who specializes in latent fingerprints;

Other characters include Fredricka “Freddie” Lounds (Lara Jean Chorostecki), a tabloid blogger; Jack Crawford’s wife, Bella (Gina Torres); Mrs. Komeda (Ellen Greene), a Boston novelist and friend of Doctor Lecter’s; Doctor Frederick Chilton (Raúl Esparza), the administrator of Baltimore State Hospital for the Criminally Insane; and Lecter’s psychotherapist, Doctor Bedelia Du Maurier (Gillian Anderson).

    The Hannibal series is great and good television, problem is too many people with kids
    and the family crap wants to control other people who like such shows, the same people
    who complain about the violence on tv are the same bozo who buy their bratty kids
    violent x box games , a bunch of hypocrites out there need to get a life and go to hell.

    This is my most anticipated weekly indulgence. There is NOTHING that comes close to this show as engrossing. Mental ride!!

  3. Arlene T says

    This is one of the most interesting shows on TV, especially considering it is network TV! NBC is shortsighted to cancel, but it is network TV and anything this controversial can not last. They will probably replace it with a boring formula drama, we won’t be watching!

    I think that this is one of the best shows I have watched in a very long time. I am upset to hear it’s been canceled and would have liked to see a culmination of all that’s been happening, like maybe KILLING Hannibal!!!
