One of the videos that debuted during the Super Bowl is for CBS’s new Silence of the Lambs spin-off series “Clarice” which centers on FBI agent Clarice Starling as she still struggles with the memories of her encounters with Dr. Hannibal Lecter and Buffalo Bill.
The series takes viewers back to 1993, a year after the events of The Silence of the Lambs, “the series is 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. Clarice has graduated 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.”
Rebecca Breeds (“Pretty Little Liars”) stars as Clarice Starling. The cast also includes Michael Cudlitz as Paul Krendler, Lucca de Oliveira as Tomas Esquivel, Kal Penn as Shaan Tripathi, Nick Sandow as Agent Clarke, Devyn Tyler as Ardelia Mapp, and Marnee Carpenter as Catherine Martin.
Elizabeth Klaviter (“The Resident”) serves as the series’ showrunner. Alex Kurtzman and Jenny Lumet write the series as well as executive produce. The pilot is directed by Maja Vrvilo.
“Clarice” premieres on CBS and CBS All Access on Thursday, February 11 at 10/9c.
