Lifetime is developing a series that would follow FBI special agent Clarice Starling, the character played by Jodie Foster in “Silence of the Lambs” and Julianne Moore in “Hannibal,” according to TV Guide.
The series, “Clarice,” would follow Starling in her seven Lecter-free years between “Lambs” and “Hannibal.”
“Clarice” is not to be confused with “Hannibal,” the midseason NBC series that follows the crimefighting adventures of FBI special agent Will Graham and psychoanalyst Hannibal Lecter before Graham learned Lecter was a serial killer. The NBC series is mastermined by writer-prouducer Bryan Fuller (“Dead Like Me,” “Wonderfalls,” “Pushing Daisies”).
The NBC series takes its characters from the Thomas Harris novel “Red Dragon.” Harris’ novel “The Silence of the Lambs” is a sequel to “Red Dragon.”
