In the field of world-famous thrillers there is no way around "The Silence of the Lambs" with

Anthony Hopkins in the role of the notorious Hannibal Lecter. But at least as iconic was the

portrayal of FBI agent Clarice Starling, played by Jodie Foster. Already in 2012 there was an

unsuccessful attempt to produce a series around Starling. Now there will be a new attempt

and US broadcaster CBS will take on such a series called " Clarice". The plot will be set in

1993, one year after the filming, and will focus on Agent Starling's dealings with other serial

killers and sex criminals.

According to the current state of affairs, the pilot episode is supposed to be finished already.

Whether this will also convince the CBS station is of course the other question. Before that

can happen, an actress has to be found who is suitable for the role of Clarice Starling.

Many fans also wonder if Hannibal Lecter will play a role in the series. If you believe a report

from Deadline, this will most likely not be the case.

How the series will continue remains to be seen.
