Back in 1991, Silence of the Lambs shook humanity to its core.

Clarice will be produced by MGM, who holds the feature film rights to The Silence of the Lambs and associated characters, and Heather Kadin will also serve as an executive producer for Secret Hideout, with Aaron Baiers co-executive producing, alongside Kurtzman and Lumet.

"After more than 20 years of silence, we're privileged to give voice to one of America's most enduring heroes - Clarice Starling", Kurtzman and Lumet said in a joint statement on Sunday, according to THR. MGM, who are producing Clarice for CBS, owns the rights to The Silence of the Lambs so that's why this show is going forward with Clarice as its linchpin, and in a procedural type environment (CBS' bread and butter), telling a different post-Lecter story. But hers is the very story we need today: her struggle, her resilience, her victory.

Fans will no doubt be aware that Fuller had optioned Ellen Page as an ideal candidate to play the character in a modern setting, but his other pitch sounded much more compelling, in that it would reimagine Clarice as a black woman and how her lived experiences, presumably, would influence her time in the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

"Writing partners Kurtzman and Lumet are now the co-creators and co-showrunners of the CBS All Access series THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH". Jodie Foster played Starling in that film, for which she won the best actress Oscar - one of five such statuettes the film took home, including best picture.

One other commenter said: " Steve Harvey bout to take his final title again she will be able to hold the opposite one". As per her updates after landing in Jamaica, the group was headed to a massive mansion to begin her birthday party.

Deadline reported that the Hannibal Lecter character will not be featured in the project, which has "received a big series commitment" from the network.

This isn't the first time that a series based around Clarice Starling has been attempted.

Lumet wrote the screenplay for the critically-acclaimed film Rachel Getting Married.

Kurtzman and Secret Hideout now oversee the expanding Star Trek TV universe through their deal with CBS TV Studios.

The spinoff, now entitled Clarice, hails from Alex Kurtzman, who presently captains the Star Trek franchise's TV universe. The animated series Star Trek: Lower Decks is also set to debut this year, with several other projects in the works.
