NBC has handed a straight-to-series order to Hannibal. The project skipped the traditional model of the network ordering a pilot and was instead handed an immediate 13 episode order.

The series, from Bryan Fuller (who is also behind the Munnsters remake for NBC), has been described as being a contemporary take on the characters from Thomas Harris’ Red Dragon novel and as such will revolve around FBI Special Agent Will Graham and his mentor, Dr. Hannibal Lecter. There aren’t many more details available at this time; including who producers are looking at as far as casting goes.

Hannibal becomes the first series to be ordered for the 2012 – 2013 TV season.
