Hannibal: Script To Screen

Recently Hannibal, the TV adaptation of author Thomas Harris’ cannibalistic gourmand Hannibal Lector’s exploits finished its third run, with NBC ceasing to air any further seasons.

It’s easy to forget how unusual it was, with it being so prevalent now in pop culture. The grungy, “used-universe” look of the film […]
