According to TV Guide:
Greenblatt said Hannibal could make it on the schedule before the end of the season if other midseason offerings fizzled. But he also said it could be held for summer, where it might be competitive against high-quality cable dramas. Added Salke: "It's very unique. It's like a procedural you've never seen before."
Mads Mikkelsen, Hugh Dancy and Laurence Fishburne star in the series as Lecter, Will Graham and Jack Crawford, respectively. The pilot is directed by David Slade and the series is said to explore the early days of Lecter and the working relationship he had with FBI agent Will Graham before it turned sour.
