[TV] When Will We See Hannibal on NBC?
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 01.06.2013

NBC chairman Robert Greenblatt and president Jenifer Salke spoke on Sunday (via IGN) about the upcoming Hannibal TV series and when it could come about. Check out the highlights:

Greenblatt on when the show may premiere: "To be determined on the scheduling of it. It could be a summer show, in which case I think you look at all the great cable shows that are on in the summer and I think it could fit really nicely in that world. It's really well crafted."

Greenblatt on the first season's overall plot: "There's a big overriding case for the first season, with a lot of other cases along the way."

Salke on the show: "[It is] very unique. And as you say, with Bryan, his imagination and the production value that he's brought to a procedural show, which obliviously has ongoing serialized aspects… It's like a procedural you've never seen before. There's a lot of big fans of it, so we haven't decided what to do with it yet, but we do love it."

Salke on whether how FOX's The Following fares will have an impact on Hannibal's scheduling: "I don't think so. Because I will tell you, and having not seen beyond the pilot of The Following, it's incredibly different. You know Bryan [Fuller], Bryan makes a show feel like none other. It doesn't look like anything you've seen anywhere else. I've never seen anything like it. So you're on the edge of your seat. It's beautifully directed David Slade, who's incredible… So no, I don't think so."

On why shows about serial killers are on the rise: "Big breakout characters. Those just happen to be killers. You need somebody who's going to grab people by the shoulders and force you to watch it, like House. If you don't come up with some stars that can step into these characters where people go: ‘wait, wait, wait a minute,' whether they are afraid of it, or intimidated by it, we're nowhere. We can't just launch a procedural show with a well-crafted cop story. It's not going to happen. So we just need to make a little more noise, and I think that FOX and everyone else feels the same way."
