‘Hannibal’: Producers Stoke Fan Support with ‘#SaveHannibal’ Twitter Campaign

Hannibal” is not going quietly.

As word spread of NBC’s decision to cancel the show after the conclusion of its third season in August, producers took to the Twitterverse with a #SaveHannibal campaign to demonstrate the depth of the show’s fan engagement to prospective new outlets.

Producers Gaumont Intl. Television and Martha De Laurentiis of the De Laurentiis Co. are actively shopping the show to new buyers, ranging from digital outlets to cable channels. The prequel to “Silence of the Lambs” reportedly had plans to introduce the Clarice Starling character, played by Jodie Foster in the Oscar-winning 1991 movie, in its fourth season.

In the meantime, the show’s hardcore fans, known as “Fannibals,” are keeping the show trending in the U.S. and other markets on social-media platforms. Exec producer Bryan Fuller, who just last week earned a series greenlight for a fantasy drama at Starz, “American Gods,” also has a dedicated online following, which doesn’t hurt the effort, either.
