First Promo for NBC's 'Hannibal' Has Bite (Video)
Bryan Fuller's Hannibal Lecter series premieres on April 4.
Hungry for NBC's Hannibal? Here's an amuse bouche.
The network has released the first teaser trailer for the new crime drama based on Thomas Harris' Hannibal Lecter character, and the results look suitably dark.
The series, from Pushing Daisies creator Bryan Fuller, revolves around brilliant FBI profiler Will Graham -- the protagonist of Harris' 1981 novel Red Dragon -- played here by Hugh Dancy. Graham joins agent Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne) on the hunt for a serial killer who, among other things, impales his victims on deer antlers.
The pair consult with Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen, the villainous Le Chiffre in 2006's Casino Royale), who in the prequel series is still practicing as a therapist, his cannibalistic crimes yet to be discovered.
The show was picked up straight to series last year, and will take over the time-slot recently vacated by Do No Harm beginning Thursday, April 4 at 10 p.m.
