Sky Living has bought the rights to the US serial-killer drama Hannibal, featuring the Hannibal Lecter character from The Silence of the Lambs.
Sky Living bought the series in an exclusive deal with distributor, Gaumont International Television.
Director of Sky Living Antonia Hurford-Jones said. "We are delighted to be adding Hannibal to our lineup of quality US drama on Sky Living.
"We know this is something our customers really love and we are committed to bringing them the best the US has to offer.
"This series is perfect for Sky Living because it will appeal not only our core female audience, but to a shared one too. Plus it will complement our new original commissions which are starting to come through."
