'Silence of the Lambs' Spinoff 'Clarice' a Go at CBS

The network announced Sunday that it has made a series commitment to a Silence of the Lambs TV spinoff called Clarice.

The drama, which technically still needs a formal series pickup to move forward, comes from Star Trek franchise producer Alex Kurtzman and his Secret Hideout production company.

Kurtzman will write the script alongside Jenny Lumet, who is a co-showrunner on Star Trek: Discovery. Aaron Baiers will co-executive produce.

The potential series is set in 1993, a year after the events of The Silence of the Lambs. Clarice is a look into the untold personal story of Clarice Starling — the role made famous by Jodie Foster in the 1991 movie — as she returns to the field to pursue serial murderers and sexual predators while navigating the high-stakes political world of Washington, DC.

An actress for the role has not been announced. It is expected to air in the 2020-21 broadcast season.
