Exclusive Preview: The Art and Making of Hannibal: The Television Series

“Eat the rude.”

NBC’s reinvention of Hannibal for television has resulted in one of the most macabre and strangely beautiful series on TV. Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) may be a heartless serial killer, but he’s also a man of fine taste and he sure knows how to cook.

In addition to Mikkelsen’s stunning turn as Hannibal Lecter, Hugh Dancy costars as Will Graham, with Laurence Fishburne as Jack Crawford and Caroline Dhavernas as Dr. Alana Bloom. The third season of Hannibal is coming to NBC this summer, but Titan Books is releasing a Hannibal companion book next month.

The Art & Making of Hannibal: The Television Series features a comprehensive look behind-the-scenes of the first two seasons of Hannibal, courtesy of author Jesse McLean. Titan Books has provided CraveOnline with seven exclusive photos from The Art & Making of Hannibal: The Television Series, which you can see below and on the following page.
