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).

    KEEP IT! I only like 3 TV series and THIS IS ONE OF THEM! The actors are what makes this show. Especially Mads Mikkelsen.

    I like the program very much otherwise I would not keep viewing it. I’ve read all the novels & seen all the films based on Tom Harris’ books. I find seeing how each actor portrays Dr. Lecter interesting. Good that the program was not cancelled & will have a new season. Am I missing something or was there supposed to be a last program of the season last Thursday? Who will he “plate” next? The possibilites are endless.

    This show is absolutely amazing! Visually brilliant, beautifully written, mind-bending, graphic and keeps you wanting more. I LOVE Mads as Hannibal. Anthony Hopkins is such a memorable character that I wasn’t sure how it would play out w/ a different actor. HOWEVER Mads is PHENOMENAL!!! LOVE HIM!

    One of four of the top four shows on prime time with Criminal Minds, Person with Interest and the Good Wife. Should really be on cable maybe following Dexter.
