TV: NBC Orders 13 'Hannibal' Episodes

Red Dragon, 2002
NBC has officially picked up a 13 episode order for Brad Fuller's Hannibal TV series.  To my great pleasure, the series will revolve around the first novel, Red Dragon (my personal favorite), and deal with Dr. Hannibal Lecter and FBI agent Will Graham.  Graham's character was most recently portrayed by Edward Norton and originally played by CSI's William Peterson.  It is yet to be determined who will don the face mask as Hannibal.

The logline...
One-hour 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.
