Lifetime Developing Series based on Clarice Starling from The Silence of the Lambs

The Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris

NBC is developing a crime drama based on characters in Thomas Harris's 1981 novel Red Dragon, and now we're learning that Lifetime Television is taking a similar route, developing a series around FBI profiler Clarice Starling, introduced in the author's second "Hannibal Lecter" thriller, the 1988 novel The Silence of the Lambs, and played so memorably by Jodie Foster in the film adaptation. (She won an Academy Award for her performance.)

Clarice — the tentative name for the Lifetime series — would follow the character soon after she graduates from the FBI academy.

No casting or further production details are known at this time.
