The Silence of the Lambs TV show that will focus on the character Clarice Starling has found its lead. Australian actor Rebecca Breeds (Home And Away, Pretty Little Liars) has been cast as the FBI agent for the show that takes place after The Silence of the Lambs. Only a pilot episode has been ordered at this point, so there is no word yet on if the show will be picked up to series.
Star Trek bosses Alex Kurtzmann and Jenny Lumet are the showrunners for the CBS TV show, which will focus on Clarice’s “untold personal story.” Following the traumatic events of The Silence of the Lambs, Clarice goes back into the field to hunt down other serial killers while also dealing with the politics of Washington D.C. (via The Hollywood Reporter).
Breeds said in a post on Instagram that Clarice is the “role of a lifetime” for her.
