Hannibal TV Series Commercial

I’m still trying to figure out how a TV series based on some of the characters and situations from the movies Manhunter (1986) and Silence of the Lambs (1991) can work as a TV show? It seems to me that those two movies worked because they were self contained, with a beginning, middle and end. Which is kind’a the opposite of a series.

I suppose if the creators of Hannibal do each episode CSI style, ala the murder mystery of the week, it won’t be very good. However, if they do something more like the murder mystery if the season then it might be interesting.
