Silence of the Lambs sequel series Clarice is in the works at CBS

  • Clarice will explore the untold personal story of Clarice Sterling, set one year after the events of The Silence of the Lambs in 1993, as she returns to the FBI field "to pursue serial murderers and sexual predators while navigating the high stakes political world of Washington, D.C." Jodie Foster won an Oscar for her role as Clarice Sterling in the 1991 film that was based on the 1988 Thomas Harris novel of the same name. According to Deadline, the Hannibal Lecter character is not expected to be part of the series. Clarice is being developed by Alex Kurtzman and Jenny Lumet. "The intention for the project, which has a pilot script written, is to go to series," says Deadline's Nellie Andreeva. "It will film a pilot before a series order decision is made but a writers room has already been set up, and there is a lot of enthusiasm for the title, the premise and the auspices at the network. Needless to say, Clarice will be one of the highest-profile roles for a young actress this pilot season." Kurtzman and Lumet said of their series: “After more than 20 years of silence, we’re privileged to give voice to one of America’s most enduring heroes – Clarice Starling. Clarice’s bravery and complexity have always lit the way, even as her personal story remained in the dark. But hers is the very story we need today: her struggle, her resilience, her victory. Her time is now, and always.”
