Official Press Release:

[box style=”quote”]Hannibal: Season One, the new addictive series on NBC from Gaumont International Television that has audiences everywhere on the edge of their seats, will be available for the first time on Blu-ray Disc, DVD and Digital Download September 24 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. From Bryan Fuller, the co-creator of TV’s “Wonderfalls” and “Pushing Daisies,” David Slade, the director of Hard Candy andThe Twilight Saga: Eclipse and based on the novels of Thomas Harris, Hannibal: Season One delves into the complex mind of iconic villain Hannibal Lecter.

Starring a critically acclaimed cast including Emmy® Award nominee Hugh Dancy (Elizabeth I, Showtime’s “The Big C”), Academy® Award nominee Laurence Fishburne (What’s Love Got to Do with It, Lead Actor, 1993, TV’s “CSI,” The Matrix) and Palme d’Or winner Mads Mikkelsen (Best Actor, The Hunt; Casino Royale), the “deliciously disturbing” (Chicago Sun Times) series captured TV audiences, premiering to over 4.3 million viewers.

FBI Agent Will Graham (Dancy) hunts the most notorious serial killers. Graham is both gifted and cursed with an extraordinary ability: he can think like his prey, seeing what they see and feeling what they feel. What he doesn’t know is that his new partner is the most notorious serial killer of all. While pursuing an especially troubling, cannibalistic murderer, Special Agent Jack Crawford (Fishburne) teams Graham with a highly respected psychiatrist – a man with a taste for the criminally minded: Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mikkelsen). Dr. Lecter tests Graham every step of the way, toying with him and playing a game all his own, while they work to unravel the mystery and catch the killer.  Like only Lecter can, he twists Graham’s mind, daring him to question everything he knows about others…and himself.

The complete first season contains all 13 episodes, including one episode never before aired on TV, plus audio commentaries on select episodes, deleted scenes, a gag reel, storyboards and multiple featurettes that cut deep into the creation of the series. TheHannibal: Season One Blu-ray Disc and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $39.97 and $39.98, respectively.[/box]
