The Silence of the Lambs

UKTV acquires The Silence of the Lambs spin-off series

A spin-off from Thomas Harris’ 1988 novel The Silence of the Lambs and its 1991 film adaptation, the thirteen-part series picks up a year after the events of the original.

Rebecca Breeds (Pretty Little Liars) stars as FBI Agent Clarice Starling, who returns to the force in 1993 but is still dealing with the fallout and trauma of the Buffalo Bill case.

She is undergoing therapy but remains as brilliant and brave a detective as ever, which draws monsters and madmen to her.
