This video contains spoilers for season two of Hannibal. Ever wonder how the minds behind Hannibal come up with each week's beautiful yet disturbing situations? Like on many TV shows, it's just a bunch of (mostly) dudes, sitting in a room, writing on white boards. So many white boards. In this clip from the Hannibal season-two DVD (out this week) behind-the-scenes documentary This Is My Design, showrunner Bryan Fuller and producer Martha De Laurentiis talk about episode five, "Mukozuke," in which a major character dies. »

Stars, executives and press braved the sweltering Los Angeles heat on Tuesday evening to toast NBC’s new television season, taking refuge in the air-conditioned wood and glass hideaway of Hollywood’s Hyde.
The atmosphere was cheery but comfortably low-key, fitting for a network in the midst of an enviable resurgence, having just emerged as the number one broadcaster for the entire year in the 18-49 demo for the first time since 2004.
NBC chairman Bob Greenblatt and entertainment president Jennifer Salke happily hobnobbed with press and talent all night, while guests nibbled on assorted tacos, risotto and croquettes. “Hannibal” showrunner Bryan Fuller was spotted chatting with “Constantine” executive producer David Goyer, while the young cast members of “Parenthood” and “About a Boy” hung out all night, even visiting the party’s gif booth.

Fans of the “Fullerverse” — the sometimes-spooky, always-askew macrocosm where TV producer Bryan Fuller’s shows (Dead Like Me, Wonderfalls, Pushing Daisies) are said to take place — have long been cautious about putting down roots there. That’s thanks to Fuller’s track record for making “brilliant but cancelled”–type fare, none of which has lasted more than two seasons. But he’s finally broken his two-and-done curse with Hannibal, his über-macabre take on the modern mythology of Hannibal Lecter, which received a third-season pickup in May. On the eve of Hannibal’s second season arriving on DVD today, we talked to Fuller about Hannibal’s diehard fans (called “Fannibals”), Hannibal’s most divisive characters, and who Kristin Chenoweth could one day play on the show.As someone who’s been a fan of several of your shows, it’s such a pleasure to get to talk to you about a »

How does NBC’s Hannibal make murder look so bloody stylish?
It helps, of course, that Mads Mikkelsen’s titular sociopath always commits his bad acts while rocking a three-piece suit.
And in the following exclusive video from the Season 2 DVD (out today), costume designer Christopher Hargadon and executive producers Bryan Fuller and Martha De Laurentiis dish the origin and purpose of Dr. Lecter’s clear plastic “kill suit” — which protects his expensive threads and keeps his DNA trail nearly nonexistent.

Coming alive Tuesday, Oct. 7 at 10/9c (as part of the cabler’s annual 31 Days of Halloween event), Town of the Living Dead follows the “colorful” residents of Jasper as they battle every imaginable obstacle to complete production on a zombie movie, Thr33 Days Dead, that thus far has been six years in the making. »

Aired September 15, 2014 on Syfy
While Bryan Fuller’s style may be a bit too quirky, macabre, or esoteric for some audiences, there’s no denying that the man knows how to give good pilot. The first episode of Wonderfalls was an endearing, fast-talking affair that gradually injected fantasy into early 20s/retail ennui. The first episode of Pushing Daisies was nothing less than a storybook brought to life, a vibrant spin on the matters of life, death, and what happens when the order of the two reverses. And the first episode of Hannibal was a visceral, otherworldly affair that made it clear from the outset it wasn’t your parents’ Hannibal Lecter.
That track record leads to a lot of high expectations for High Moon, even though unlike those previous shows the pilot is (likely) all there’s going to be. »

Ron doesn't see why Syfy's fun, good-looking sci-fi pilot, High Moon, didn't make it to series. There's plenty here to enjoy...
Once upon a time, you couldn't sneeze in the summer without hitting some sort of made-for-tv movie. Sometimes, they'd be specially made for the purpose of airing. Sometimes, they'd just be unused pilots that happened to be edited into a two-hour block to fill a little airtime. For every The Night Stalker, there was a Steel Magnolias, K-9 And Company, or a Riding With Death (which went on to fame via Mystery Science Theater 3000). In other words, the TV movie pilot doesn't always work out all that well. However, you have to give SyFy credit for trying to make something out of nothing with High Moon, the television pilot version of John Christopher's novel The Lotus Caves.
In the not-too-distant future, the moon has become the new »
Tonight, Americans have the choice between watching Dancing with the Stars, Monday Night Football, and … a SyFy movie with gay Russian spies on the moon. Curious? You’re not alone: SyFy executives thought the same thing of Bryan Fuller’s newest creation, High Moon. For four years, Fuller and the channel entered into an on-again, off-again relationship. At first it was a pilot, then a miniseries, then back to a pilot, then back to… you get the idea.
“ecause of how strange the development process was at the network, I don’t think anybody was surprised [that it wasn't made into a series],” Fuller said. “Right before we were ordered, »

One of the highlights of season 2, he told us, was seeing how audiences embraced Katharine Isabelle's Margot Verger character. "I was so happy with that," he said. "It was one of those things - as we were integrating it into the mythology of our version of the world - that sort of came out of left field and we built them up. But I was always a little self-conscious when dealing with a character like this from the books - could we have integrated them smoother or done something different?

Anderson will reprise her role of Dr. Bedelia du Maurier, Hannibal Lecter's former psychiatrist, in the new season. She will have a bigger part to play than in previous years.
The pair's relationship is expected to be a big focus of the first half of the new season, show runner Bryan Fuller joking the other month that the season premiere is essentially a "pilot for a new series starring Mads Mikkelsen and Gillian Anderson".

Fannibals rejoice, as we’ll be seeing a lot more of X-Files alum Gillian Anderson in Hannibal‘s next season. Anderson made quite the splash in the first two seasons as Hannibal Lecter’s psychiatrist, the mysterious Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier, and quickly became an fan favorite. Now, she’ll get even more scenery to chew on as she’s been promoted to a series regular for season three.
When we last saw Dr. Du Maurier, she was on a plane accompanying Lecter as he fled the country in the last few moments of the season two finale. So far, her true motivations and feelings about Lecter have been kept secret, though we were led to believe for a time that she was afraid of her former patient and was willing to rat him out to the authorities. Now that those ideas have been thrown out the window, we’ll »

Set a century from now, High Moon centers on the ragtag mix of spies, miners, soldiers and entrepreneurs who live on the moon, where a race is underway to mine its resources. An alien plant promises to change the world — or bring about its doom.

"Hannibal" and "Pushing Daisies" producer Bryan Fuller is moving forward with the TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman's novel "American Gods". In a new and lengthy interview with Den of Geek, Fuller says he and screenwriter Michael Green have no plans to whitewash the lead character of Shadow as some feared might happen:
"In our conversations about who our ideals are for specific roles, Shadow is described as... is he a gypsy? Is he Hispanic? Is he black? Or is he all of those things in one? So we know that he is not white! I think if we cast a white man to play Shadow we would be the biggest a--holes on television."
The plan is to not just translate but potentially expand upon the world which Gaiman created:
"You have to ground it in the emotional reality of what Shadow, or Wednesday, or Laura is experiencing in that moment. »

Good news for fans of NBC's "Hannibal" and one of its recurring stars arrived today as it's been confirmed that Gillian Anderson, who appeared in Seasons 1 and 2 as Hannibal's psychiatrist (and travel companion), Bedelia du Maurier, has been upped to a regular in Season 3.
The news came via TVLine and the "Hannibal" Twitter feed. Showrunner/exec producer Bryan Fuller told the site, "The cast and crew of 'Hannibal' are positively giddy to be welcoming Gillian to Season 3 as a series regular."
He added, "A striking presence on stage and screen, she brings wit, grace, and intelligence to every role she embodies. Screenwriting is so much easier when you’re inspired by a great actor, and Gillian has filled the 'Hannibal' writers' room with wonderful inspiration. I can’t wait for audiences to see her make a bigger meal out of the Cannibal than ever before."

A sci-fi saga set in outer space produced by Bryan Fuller, the creator of Hannibal, Pushing Daisies and Wonderfalls? The idea sounded promising when SyFy ordered a 90-minute pilot for High Moon last summer, but alas, the finished product didn’t entice the network to send the show to series. Fuller’s fans and geeks of all stripes can judge for themselves when SyFy airs the pilot as a TV movie on Monday, Sept. 15, at 9 Pm.

Warning: contains a minor spoiler for American Gods.
While chatting to Bryan Fuller about plans for Hannibal season three, we couldn’t fail to bring up the forthcoming TV version of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods, which Fuller is currently adapting for Starz with Heroes’ Michael Green.
The full interview will be on the site next week, but in the meantime, here are a few excerpts from our chat, taking in why the project failed at HBO, plans for the show to extend beyond the world of the novel and into multiple seasons, how the series will approach some of the novel’s stranger moments, and what would make he and Michael Green “the biggest assholes in television”...
On why American Gods [which HBO originally had the option on adapting] proved so tricky for HBO to get right: »
When last we talked about High Moon, an adaptation of John Christopher's novel The Lotus Caves by Bryan Fuller ("Hannibal"), it was being called a pilot; but now it seems to be just another in the network's long line of Original Movies.

Fuller's adaptation never got picked up to series, but now Syfy is slated to show the 90-minute series premiere which has been repurposed as a TV movie that will air later this month. To tease the telemovie, the network has just posted the first five minutes of the pilot-turned-telemovie online at TV Line.
Jonathan Tucker, Jake Sandvig, Chris Diamantopoulos, and Charity Wakefield star in the series which is set on the Earth's moon which is now home to numerous mining colonies. Chaos erupts when a new life form is revealed.
Jim Danger Gray ("Hannibal," "Torchwood") wrote the script and Adam Kane ("Pushing Daisies") directed the work. Funnily enough this marks the second failed pilot of Fuller's to be turned into a telemovie event, »

A couple of years ago, Syfy gave a pilot order to High Moon, Bryan Fuller‘s adaptation of John Christopher‘s 1969 sci-fi Ya novel The Lotus Caves. The bad news for fans of the Hannibal creator is that High Moon never got picked up to series. But the good news today is that we’ll get to […]
