'Hannibal' Series Lands on NBC


The peacock has bought the hourlong drama which is written by 'Pushing Daisies' creator Bryan Fuller based on Thomas Harris' novels.

Hannibal Lecter has found a home at NBC. It has been reported that the network has sealed a deal with Bryan Fuller to create a broadcast series based on the serial killer character in Thomas Harris' bestselling novels.

The "Pushing Daisies" creator and "Heroes" writter, Fuller, is currently working on the script. If NBC likes it, the network will pick up the show straight to series with a 13-episode commitment. Fuller additionally serves as the executive producer along with Martha De Laurentiis, who has produced three Hannibal feature films: "Hannibal", "Red Dragon" and "Hannibal Rising".

There is no other detail about "Hannibal" TV project. Previously, it was said that the small screen adaptation will center on Dr. Hannibal Lecter's early days, namely his time going head-to-head with a young FBI criminal profiler named Will Graham, who is haunted by his ability to empathize with serial killers.

In another report about new TV project, The CW has bought "Danny Hollywood", a travel fantasy musical project based on the successful Israeli series of the same name. "Easy A" scribe Bert V. Royal will pen the script, and team up with Mark Harmon, Eric & Kim Tannenbaum and Martha Haight to executive produce it.

The show follows a young documentary filmmaker who travels back in time in order to prevent the death of her 1990s musical idol Danny Hollywood. She, however, finds that the story is even more complicated than she thought.
