Re: Bryan Fuller making Hannibal Lecter series!

You are so fast! I only just saw that.

Dude looks creepy, so there's that. But I dunno about all these serial killer shows. I don't get the sense that there's a lot of appetite for an ongoing serial killer TV show among the broadcast audience. A movie, sure, but that's just two hours. How do you maintain this topic before it gets, well, boring?

My hunch is that Hannibal and The Following are going to premiere strong and then fall off fast. The one that might hit is Cult - which may or may not even be a serial killer show, but certainly has that feel. Mainly I think that one is well suited to the CW's audience, while having the potential to expand it like the CW wants, into a male direction.

I think this may be another example of Hollywood deciding that X is the big trend, while guess what, the trend is really Y (Hatfields & McCoys, anyone?) Being able to turn around on a dime about as well as an aircraft carrier in a sea of mollasses, they'll fall all over themselves making Westerns, by which time, the trend is Z. Hee hee.
