David Bowie has been offered a role in the TV show Hannibal.

Speaking to E! News, showrunner Bryan Fuller said: "We have reached out to David Bowie to see if he's interested and available.

"We would love for him to play Hannibal's uncle, who is a character from the literature..."

Fuller also opened up about the second series, saying: "We're going to see Will Graham institutionalised and what we know from Red Dragon, the backstory that is given, which is very, very thin, explains that Will Graham was so psychologically compromised from investigating the Minnesota case that he had to be institutionalised. And that's sort of one sentence that we can do quite a bit with."
