Promoting Hannibal for NBC and Hemlock Grove for Netflix, the second seasons of which are currently in production, Gaumont International Television (GIT) will be heading to the Asia TV Forum (ATF) in Singapore for the first time (3-6 December).

GIT considers the timing is perfect to "reach many of the top buyers in the entertainment industry from Asia," as Hannibal and Hemlock Grove continue to sell around the world.

Hannibal (26 x 60') is a drama series exploring the unique early relationship of Thomas Harris's classic character renowned psychiatrist Dr Hannibal Lecter and his patient, a young FBI criminal profiler.

Based on the gothic novel by Brian McGreevy and directed by Eli Roth, Hemlock Grove (23 x 60') tells the tale of the unravelling of a once vibrant and now struggling community after a mysterious death.

GIT has also other projects currently in the works, including an adaptation of Barbarella for Canal +.
