A Savory Dessert

This week’s blog is from Bryan Fuller, Hannibal’s series creator and Executive Producer.

Production wrapped on the first season of Hannibal and our final days of shooting were a veritable smorgasbord of completing the last episode, brought home by visionary director David Slade, as well as picking up several connective tissue scenes and shots required for many episodes scattered throughout the season. I was reminded of an episode of “Star Trek: Voyager” in which a chronokinetic surge from a spatial rift caused a blast of temporal energy to fracture the ship into multiple time frames. As I crossed from one set to the next, passing through episodes 3, 7, 11 and 13 without breaking stride, I was all too aware of the sprawling, morphing monster that is television production and immensely grateful for the team of actors, writers, directors, producers, designers, builders and doers surrounding me that tamed the beast.

We are airing the final episode of Hannibal Season 1 tonight in the United States and I still find myself grateful. I am grateful not only for the beast-tamers as we return for Hannibal Season 2, but for the passionate and enthusiastic audience that has taken a seat at Dr. Lecter’s dinner table and tucked in their napkins for our first meal together. We have one last dish to serve. It’s a dessert and a particularly savory one, which is why we called it “Savoureux.” On behalf of the actors, writers, directors, producers, designers, builders and doers, we hope you’ve enjoyed the meal. My last wish is that our savory dessert leaves you hungry for more of what Hannibal has been cooking. Bon Appetit.

v.best,

Bryan Fuller
