CBS Announces Silence Of The Lambs Spinoff Series Clarice

Clarice Series Silence of the Lambs

CBS has officially green-lit a series, they announced Sunday, that will revisit Starling one year after the ending of The Silence of the Lambs as she continues her work with pursuing serial murderers and sexual predators for the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Just when you thought the growing television landscape was loaded with enough sequels, spin-offs and reboots, here comes a whopper: CBS has plans to form an entire series around The Silence of the Lambs's Clarice Starling, a role made famous by Jodie Foster. She seeks the help of Dr. Hannibal Lecter, who is also a serial killer, but behind bars.

The show is placed in 1993, a-year following the activities of Silence of this Lambs.

Written and produced by Alex Kurtzman and Jenny Lumet, it has become one of the most-anticipated series of the year so far. "Clarice's bravery and complexity have always shown the way, even if her personal story has remained in the dark". But her own story is what we need today: her struggle, her resilience, her victory. Her time is now, and always, ' they added.

And exciting though the news may be, some fans of Hannibal aren't happy at the development - with the Bryan Fuller show having not been picked up by any networks since its third series aired in 2015.

Villa needed to add to their goalkeeping options after England worldwide Tom Heaton was ruled out for the remainder of the season. Villa lost 6-1 to Manchester City on Sunday as they continue to look for a striker after Wesley's long-term injury.

Deadline reports that a pilot episode of the series, titled Clarice, has been given the go ahead by CBS. Finally, Heather Kadin will executive produce the series and Aaron Baiers will co-executive produce.

Kurtzman will executive produce under his Secret Hideout banner, which is now under a five-year deal at CBS Television Studios. Lumet is a co-showrunner on Star Trek: Discovery and will work on the pilot script with Kurtzman. Clarice Starling is a character who deserves to have her story told, and I am thrilled that she'll be back on the screen in the near future.

Of course, the big question we're now left with is who might handle the role that once got Jodie Foster her second Academy Award.

And it's not the first time the property has inspired a TV series either, with the acclaimed Hannibal, based on Harris's complex psychopath Hannibal Lecter, airing three series on NBC, with Mads Mikkelsen in the lead.
