Clarice Starling Series In The Works But Hannibal Lecter Will Not Be Involved

CBS has confirmed a new crime series based on Silence Of The Lambs Clarice Starling, which will be set after the events of the original film.

Clarice, written and executive produced by Alex Kurtzman & Jenny Lumet will film a pilot before a series order decision is confirmed but a writers room as already been set up and there is a lot of enthusiasm for the title, Deadline share.

Clarice is set in 1993, a year after the events of The Silence of the Lambs. The series is a deep dive into the untold personal story of Clarice Starling, as she returns to the field to pursue serial murderers and sexual predators while navigating the high stakes political world of Washington, D.C.

“After more than 20 years of silence, we’re privileged to give voice to one of America’s most enduring heroes – Clarice Starling,” said Kurtzman and Lumet. “Clarice’s bravery and complexity have always lit the way, even as her personal story remained in the dark. But hers is the very story we need today: her struggle, her resilience, her victory. Her time is now, and always.”
