ProSiebenSat.1 Group secures exclusive free-TV rights to US series “Hannibal”

Munich, April 10, 2012. The ProSiebenSat.1 Group has acquired the exclusive free-TV rights to the American TV series "Hannibal" for its German-speaking and Scandinavian TV stations. The crime series can be seen on ProSiebenSat.1 stations in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, and Denmark from 2013. As well as the free-TV rights, the Group has also acquired the video-on-demand and pay-TV rights.

Rüdiger Böss, Senior Vice President Group Programming Acquisitions: "The character of psychiatrist Dr. Hannibal Lecter is a true brand following box-office smashes like "The Silence of the Lambs", and is sure to be a hit with audiences as a series as well. We are delighted that we have secured the broadcasting rights for our family of European stations."

"Hannibal" is produced by Bryan Fuller. US actor Hugh Dancy takes the role of FBI agent Will Graham. The series will be shown on NBC in the USA. The station ordered 13 episodes of the show in early 2012 on the basis of the script.

"Hannibal" is based on the "Red Dragon" series of novels by Thomas Harris. It begins as FBI agent Will Graham meets his - still young - mentor Hannibal Lecter. Contact: Katrin Schneider
