NBC preps ‘Hannibal’ for Thursday slot

Show from Bryan Fuller takes over for 'Do No Harm'

It’s time to break out the fava beans and Chianti: NBC has slotted its new drama “Hannibal” for a spring premiere.

Starting April 4, the Peacock will air the Hannibal Lecter-inspired hour in the Thursday 10 p.m. hour vacated by the two-and-out “Do No Harm.” NBC has struggled in the timeslot in recent years, with last year alone seeing three different dramas — “Prime Suspect,” “The Firm” and “Awake” — fail to make much noise in the time period.

The net plans to air repeats of “Law & Order: SVU” in the Thursday-at-10 hour through March.

Show comes from Bryan Fuller, Martha DeLaurentiis and Gaumont International TV and stars Mads Mikkelsen as Dr. Hannibal Lecter and Hugh Dancy as FVI agent Will Graham, characters from Thomas Harris’ novel Red Dragon

Series creator Bryan Fuller spilled the beans via Twitter on Thursday: #Hannibal Requests the Honor of your Presence for Dinner Thursday April 4 10PM @NBC — Saving you a place at the table.

“Hannibal” will roll out internationally across Sony Pictures Television Networks’ AXN international channels in the days following the NBC premiere. The series will premiere in over 60 countries and will be versioned in 18 languages.
