Upcoming crime drama series Clarice, a sequel to Silence of the Lambs, will be heading to Australian streaming service Stan.
The series, which is set to be released on CBS and CBS All Access in the US, will find Aussie star Rebecca Breeds (The Originals, Pretty Little Liars) taking on the role of Clarice Starling, the FBI agent memorably played by Jodie Foster in 1991 Oscar winner The Silence of the Lambs and Juliane Moore in 2001’s Hannibal.
As the official synopsis reads, the plot “dives into the untold personal story of FBI Agent Clarice Starling as she returns to the field in 1993, one year after the events of The Silence of the Lambs. Brilliant and vulnerable, Clarice’s bravery gives her an inner light that draws monsters and madmen to her. However, her complex psychological makeup that comes from a challenging childhood empowers her to begin to find her voice while working in a man’s world, as well as escape the family secrets that have haunted her throughout her life.”
The show was created by Alex Kurtzman, creator/executive producer of Star Trek shows Discovery & Picard and known for writing films such The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and Jenny Lumet, who’s worked with Kurtzman on the Trek projects.
The cast also includes Michael Cudlitz as Paul Krendler, Lucca de Oliveira as Tomas Esquivel, Kal Penn as Shaan Tripathi, Nick Sandow as Agent Clarke, Devyn Tyler as Ardelia Mapp and Marnee Carpenter as Catherine Martin.
Clarice will have its Australian premiere on Stan on February 12th, same day as the U.S.
