Hannibal Lecter Heads to NBC for at Least Thirteen Episodes

Cinema's most beloved cannibal mastermind is coming to NBC in a thirteen-episode deal that'll skip right over the pilot process, the network confirms to Vulture. Hannibal, an hourlong drama, will be written and executive produced by Bryan Fuller, whose Munsters reboot Mockingbird Lane — also an NBC project — was postponed just days ago. But hey, as long as Mockingbird does actually happen, Hannibal does its thing, and NBC gets the Dracula show it vants? Things will be looking pretty, pretty spooky over at the Peacock! (Different kind of spooky; not the Community-benching, "help, our ratings are dying" one.)
