NBC has found one of its two leads for the drama pilot Hannibal. The contemporary thriller series comes from Pushing Daisies creator Bryan Fuller and centers on the relationship between FBI agent William Graham and Dr. Hannibal Lecter from Thomas Harris’ series of novels. Deadline reports that Hugh Dancy (King Arthur) has landed the role of Graham in the 13-episode series. The character was previously played by Edward Norton in Brett Ratner’s Red Dragon and William Peterson in Michael Mann’s Manhunter. Fuller is developing two high-profile pilots this season. In addition to Hannibal, he’s working on a Munsters reboot called Mockingbird Lane with director Bryan Singer. Fuller will write and executive produce Hannibal, and I’m eager to see whom the producers land on for the all-important role of Dr. Lecter.
