    NBC
    In this new drama from Bryan Fuller, Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) comes to life. The characters are based on those from Thomas Harris' novels. Gifted criminal profile Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) has a unique way of thinking and can empathize with anyone, making it easy for him to figure out how a killer thinks. Needing the help of an expert when a twisted killer becomes too complicated for Will, he joins up with Dr. Lecter, one of the top psychiatrists in the country. Will and Hannibal (only the audience knows he's a serial killer) develop a talented partnership and seem unstoppable when it comes to catching criminals. Other characters include Dr. Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne), head of the FBI's Behavioral Science Unit. His job is to catch the most heinous serial killers and Will is his most valuable tool. Dr. Alana Bloom (Caroline Dhavernas), a former psychology professor, is an FBI consultant and Will's co-worker. Dr. Lecter was her mentor and she disagrees with him when it comes to his unconventional treatments. Members of the Behavioral Science Unit include Beverly Katz (Hettienne Park) who specializes in fibers. She always treats Will like everyone else and not someone special, something he appreciates. Jimmy Price (Scott Thompson) is a master of forensics and technology. Brian Zeller (Aaron Abrams) works with Katz and uses his medical degree to determine cause of death. He is arrogant and competitive which makes him at odd with Will. Outside the group is tabloid blogger Freddie Lounds (Lara Jean Chorostecki) who is out to use Will and the FBI for her next sensational expose. Bryan Fuller is a writer and executive producer along with Martha De Laurentiis, Sara Colleton, Jesse Alexander and Katie O'Connell. David Slade is the director and executive producer for the series pilot. For the first season of Hannibal , the episodes were titled after French meal courses. In season two, the episode titles refer to Japanese cuisine. According to Bryan Fuller, these have a particular significance to Hannibal's own history. In season one, NBC pulled Oeuf (at the request of Bryan Fuller) and renumbered its episodes, airing only 12 of the 13 episodes produced. The episode became available for viewing on Amazon and iTunes.moreless
