A New TV Show... With Fava Beans and a Nice Chianti

Miss Hannibal Lecter? Apparently NBC does, because they just bought an hour-long drama to be titled Hannibal, based on the iconic cannibal character. The show comes from Bryan Fuller, who has experience with dark, weird television: Dead Like Me, Heroes, and Pushing Daisies are amongst his credits. Hit the jump for more.

Fuller got a pretty good deal with this sale. He is writing the script, and if NBC likes it, Hannibal will go straight into production on thirteen episodes, completely bypassing the traditional pilot route. Martha De Laurentiis (Hannibal, Hannibal Rising, Red Dragon) is attached to executive produce.
