Hannibal

Psychiatrist-turned-serial-killer, Dr. Hannibal Lecter, comes to life on television for the first time on NBC's highly anticipated new drama.

"Hannibal" from Bryan Fuller, is based on the characters from Thomas Harris' classic novels. Viewers will finally be able see where the incredible story began.

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

But when the mind of the twisted killer he's pursuing is too complicated for even Will to comprehend, he enlists the help of Dr. Lecter, 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.

"Hannibal" premieres on Thursday, April 4, at 10/9 central.
