CBS has released the first full trailer for the new Silence of the Lambs sequel series Clarice, and the series looks amazing and original. I’m curious to see how they move the story of Clarice.
Rebecca Breeds (The Originals, Pretty Little Liars) is appearing in the role of Clarice Starling, and the story of the show is set in 1993, a year after the events of The Silence of the Lambs. It will take “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.”
Brilliant and vulnerable, Clarice graduated Magna from UVA with a double major in psych and criminology. Her bravery gives her an inner light that draws monsters and madmen to her. Her complex psychological makeup comes from a challenging childhood, and her drive comes from her need to escape the burden of family secrets that have haunted her throughout her life.
Alex Kurtzman (Transformers, Star Trek) is the producer of the show and Jenny Lumet (Rachel Getting Married), and it also stars Kal Penn, Nick Sandow, and Devyn A. Tyler in supporting roles.
Clarice will air on Thursday, February 11th at 10-11 PM ET/PT.
