OFFICIAL TV TRAILER AND SHOW INFO
CLARICE stars Rebecca Breeds and premieres on CBS on February 11, 2021
In a surprising sequel to the 1991 movie, SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, starring Jodie Foster (Clarice Starling) and Anthony Hopkins (Hannibal Lecter), CBS is set to debut a new show, CLARICE, which takes place exactly one year after the events of the original movie. Based on a book series by Thomas Harris, CLARICE follows FBI agent Clarice Starling as she works to find the serial killers that plague on innocents.
SHE IS HAUNTED BY
THE SCREAMING OF THE LAMBS
According to the movie description and the official tv trailer, CLARICE will dive deeper into the life of Clarice Starling. This deep dive will include how a traumatic event in her childhood still affects her present-day thoughts and actions. The actor who plays this newest Clarice, REBECCA BREEDS, is new to me. But from the tv trailer, I’m not opposed to her casting at all. I think she makes a great TV counterpart for Jodie Foster. She looks to be someone who can bring to life all the subtle nuisances that made the character so memorable for Foster fans.
ON A FUNNY, COINCIDENTAL SIDE NOTE
Recently, I helped create an English curriculum for at-risk high school students. This class was based around my thesis research on serial killers and their violence and dehumanization toward victims. SILENCE OF THE LAMBS is one of two fiction books I chose that students in the class could quickly and easily find characterization elements from real life serial killers and FBI agents. Killers like Ted Bundy and Ed Gein, and FBI agents like John Douglas, who actually helped create the FBI Behavioral Science Unit. It was an interesting class to develop, and having so recently read the book as a result, I am extremely excited to see what they do with this new series and this character.
