From Bryan Fuller (“Wonderfalls,” “Pushing Daisies”) and David Slade (Hard Candy, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse) comes Hannibal: Season One. It is NBC’s new addictive, thrilling series that is based on the iconic villain Hannibal Lecter from the novels of Thomas Harris. It stars a critically acclaimed cast including Emmy Award nominee Hugh Dancy as FBI Agent Will Graham, Academy Award nominee Laurence Fishburne as Special Agent-in-Charge Jack Crawford and Palme d’Or winner Mads Mikkelsen as Dr. Hannibal Lecter.
FBI Agent Will Graham is a gifted criminal profiler who hunts the most notorious serial killers. He has the extraordinary gift of being able to think like his prey -- seeing what they see and feeling what they feel. But when the mind of the twisted, cannibalistic murderer he is pursuing is too complicated for even Will to comprehend, Special Agent Jack Crawford teams Graham up with Dr. Hannibal Lecter, one of the premier psychiatric minds in the country with a taste for the criminally minded. Armed with the uncanny expertise of the brilliant doctor, the two make a formidable team -- with Dr. Lecter testing Graham every step of the way, toying with him and playing a game all his own. Unbeknownst to Will, Dr. Lechter is destined to become his most cunning enemy yet.
Hannibal: Season One contains all 13 episodes, including one episode never before aired on TV (“Œuf”), plus audio commentaries on select episodes, deleted scenes, a gag reel, storyboards and multiple featurettes that cut deep into the creation of the series.

Jack copes with her loss and the prospect of losing his wife by opening up to Hannibal.

Hannibal is all too willing to take advantage of this, manipulating Will into being alone in the same room with Gideon.

Elsewhere, Jack begins to suspect that Hannibal is hiding something, and pays to visit to Dr. Du Maurier.
- “Savoureux” - A confused and shaken Will returns from Minnesota alone, and the evidence suggests that he murdered Abigail. Hannibal convinces Will that he needs to turn himself in to the FBI.
