Gaumont inks sales deals on ‘Hannibal’

Company announces agreements for skein ahead of Mipcom

CANNES– Gaumont International Television (GIT), the L.A.-based arm of the European mini-major, has inked key sales on Bryan Fuller’s thriller drama “Hannibal.”

Commissioned by NBC, the 13-episode skein was nabbed by Canal Plus (France), City TV (Canada), and Nordisk (Scandinavia) for a DVD deal.

Previous deals were closed with ProSieben in Germany, along with Sony/AXN which are co-producing.

Sales were announced ahead of Mipcom by Erik Pack, GIT’s head of intl. distribution and co-production.

“We are delighted to have finalized these deals on the eve of Mipcom,” said Pack. “As evidenced by these sales, ‘Hannibal’ is proving to be an incredibly successful and sought after title across all forms of media in all parts of the world. We look forward to closing more deals at Mipcom.”

Based on Thomas Harris’s novels, “Hannibal”, starring Hugh Dancy, Laurence Fishburne and Mads Mikkelsen, explore the riveting early relationship between Dr. Hannibal Lecter, the psychiatrist-turned-serial killer created by Thomas Harris, and his patient, a young FBI criminal profiler.

Fuller is exec producing with Martha De Laurentiis, Jesse Alexander and Chris Brancato.

Launched over a year ago and helmed by TV vet Katie O’Connell, GIT boasts a lineup of high-quality drama developped for the U.S. and international markets, including Eli Roth’s “Hemlock Grove,” nabbed by Netflix, and Nicolas Winding Refn’s “Barbarella,” which has been boarded by Canal Plus.

Mipcom runs Oct.8-11 in Cannes.
