The character of Clarice Starling was previously portrayed on-screen by Jodie Foster in Jonathan Demme’s 1991 film The Silence of the Lambs, and by Julianne Moore in Ridley Scott’s 2001 sequel Hannibal.
Clarice is being written and executive produced by Alex Kurtzman and Jenny Lumet. The duo are also serving as co-creators and co-showrunners for the upcoming CBS All Access drama series The Man Who Fell to Earth, based on David Bowie’s 1976 film.
