It’s been a long while since Bryan Fuller’s talents have been seen on the small screen, but it looks like we’re one step closer to his grand return. According to Entertainment Weekly, NBC has purchased the “Hannibal” television series that BFO reported on two months ago. A source confirming to EW has stated that the deal is a “straight-to-series order.” That means, if NBC likes the script, we won’t have to wait on the network approving a pilot to see an entire series. Here’s to hoping everything goes well!
Edit: Deadline is also reporting that NBC is close to picking up the much anticipated adaptation of “The Munsters.” This has been a project in development for a very long time, but it seems the network – and new chief, Bob Greenblatt – have a lot of faith in it. Nellie Andreeva at Deadline stated that NBC may order a full series as early as this week, after Bryan Fuller submitted the redeveloped script last Friday.
