All we have seen of a Clarice Starling Through the Many Adaptations of Thomas Harris Literature Over the years, nearly every story about the hotshot, the young FBI agent has focused on her tireless hunt to find and imprison serial killers. Alex Kurtzman and Jenny Lumet’s new Clarice series for CBS wants to change things up a bit.
When you are introduced to Rebecca Breeds’ take on Starling, she is at a point in her career where she has already captured the serial killer antagonist of Thesilenceofthelambs, Jame “Buffalo Bill” Gumb, and made a name for himself as a member of the agency with the actual chops to get the job done right. But while Clarice’s temper and ability to sense the intentions of others is what makes her such a competent investigator, what you see in Clariceis the first full trailer is that her talents make her a target within the FBI – someone at least some of her colleagues see as to be out of his departmenth.
At the same time as people run around the Washington DC area and murder people, Clarice is tasked with overcoming obstacles and everyone’s expectations hoping she fails. It’s a challenge Starling is more than up to, but as you see in the closing moments of the trailer, it won’t be long before her job ends up putting her smack dab in the middle of danger. that no one really should have to deal with.
Big like Bryan Fuller Hannibal looms in Clariceshadow of for obvious reasons, it looks like the shows are going to exist in very different spaces both in tone and style, despite their common subject. Whether Clarice ends up being a compelling story that will keep you coming back to this bloodied world of evil killers that will depend on what kind of gripping stories it begins to weave when the series airs on CBS on February 11.
Clarice—Which also stars Lucca De Oliveira, Devyn A. Tyler, Kal Penn, Nick Sandow, Michael Cudlitz and Marnee Carpenter — debuts on CBS on February 11.
