Consider this an appetizer to the main course NBC will be serving up on April 4: An exclusive first look at the delectable poster for Hannibal, Bryan Fuller’s ravenously anticipated contemporary drama series based on the characters from Thomas Harris’ Red Dragon novel.
The following key art cheekily plays up Dr. Lecter’s (played by Mads Mikkelsen) fondness for, ahem, unconventional cuisine, while partially obscuring the crazed cannibal’s face.

So, what are you waiting for? Channel your inner Don Draper and serve up your catchiest copy to accompany Hannibal‘s first wave of propaganda. Here’s my pitch: “The Doctor will Saw You Now.”Follow @MichaelAusiello
