Star Rebecca Breeds is on the case as Clarice Starling in THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS‘ follow-up series, Clarice. CBS has released the first full trailer for the show which is set to a spooky version of John Denver’s “Country Road.”
Breeds is taking on the titular role originated by Jodie Foster in the 1991 Oscar-winning film based on the Thomas Harris novel. The CBS series is set in 1993, one year after the events of The Silence of the Lambs. The show will tell the personal story of FBI Agent Clarice Starling (Breeds) as she returns to the field to pursue serial murderers and sexual predators while navigating the high-stakes political world of Washington, D.C.
When Clarice was first announced, it was revealed that the show would not include the character of Hannibal Lecter, a signature figure from the Harris novels & the films. This is Clarice’s story & the focus will be on her. We do see glimpses from the original film as we prepare to go on this new journey with Agent Starling and it does match the mood of the original movie. The series also stars Marnee Carpenter, Jayne Atkinson, Shawn Doyle, and Tim Guinee.
