Hannibal Lecter helps Will Graham to catch a serial killer is, of course, the plot to the great movie Manhunter. Now Bryan Fuller – who created Pushing Daisies and wrote a lot of the best episodes of Heroes – has created a prequel to that movie, showing how Hannibal used to help Graham on cases, before, of course, Graham had him locked up. It stars Mads Mikkelsen of Casino Royale fame as Hannibal and here’s a trailer. It’s going to air on Thursdays, 10pm EST on NBC, starting April 4 and be cancelled about three weeks afterwards, this being NBC n’all.
