In The Silence of the Lambs, Clarice was played by Jodie Foster as she hunts a serial killer, "Buffalo Bill" - who skins his female victims. To catch him, she seeks the advice of the imprisoned Dr. Hannibal Lecter, a psychiatrist and cannibalistic serial killer.

Pretty Little Liars actress Rebecca Breeds will star as the titular detective in the drama, which will take place in 1993.

CBS senior executive vice president Thom Sherman said in a statement about the show's launch: "All eyes will be on CBS for three consecutive Sundays in early 2021 with the broadcasts of the AFC Championship Game, the GRAMMY Awards, and Super Bowl LV.

"These powerhouse events provide us with the perfect platforms to promote the February debuts of our captivating new drama, Clarice, and the return of the positive and heartfelt Tough As Nails, which had a very successful first season run that resonated with viewers over the summer."

Clarice is the second TV show inspired by Thomas Harris' novels featuring the Hannibal character. Fans will remember Hannibal, which started Mads Mikkelsen as the titular character and Hugh Dancy as FBI investigator Will Graham. Despite it's cancellation after only three seasons, it has garnered a cult following and critical acclaim,
