NBC Pulls Episode of ‘Hannibal’ About Children Who Murder Other Children
NBC is pulling the fourth episode of Hannibal, “Ceuf”scheduled to air next Thursday, April 25 because its subject – children who are brainwashed into committing murder – has been deemed inappropriate in light of the Boston bombings and other recent violent incidents. The fifth episode, “Coquilles” will air in its place. The omission of one episode from the series will move the season finale up a week to June 20 from June 27. According to Variety, showrunner Bryan Fuller made the decision not to air the episode. NBC will make selected clips for the episode available online. The episode will be shown outside of the United States.
