Hannibal Given a 13-Episode Order from NBCNow this is interesting. Without any word of casting, which you’d think would be pretty critical for a series like this, NBC has given a 13-episode order to “Hannibal” from Gaumont International Television, written and executive produced by Bryan Fuller and executive produced by Martha DeLaurentiis.

Per Deadline the project is described as a contemporary thriller series featuring the classic characters from Thomas Harris’ novel Red Dragon – FBI agent Will Graham and his mentor, Dr. Hannibal Lecter – who are re-introduced at the beginning of their budding relationship. The project was bought by NBC preemptively in November with a script against a 13-episode commitment, meaning that the project wouldn’t go through a pilot stage but straight to series if NBC brass liked the script. The network had a short window after receiving Fuller’s script to pick up the series, which it just did.

GIT, launched in September with Katie O’Connell as CEO, is the company that placed a 13-episode order at Netflix for Hemlock Grove, a thriller/horror series executive produced and directed by Eli Roth.

Look for more on both soon!
