With the success of The Walking Dead broadcast networks are now looking to jump on the bandwagon. EW has let it out that NBC bought the pilot for a show that mixes Fantasy and Crime together. The show is being called Grimm and is from the writers of Buffy and Angel. It is being described as “dark but fantastical cop drama about a world in which characters inspired by Grimm’s Fairy Tales exist.”
It could be interesting but I am always skeptical with NBC. Don’t forget that this is the same network that picked up the Master of Horror series, renamed it Fear Itself, and then canned it after one season. Broadcast networks cannot do the same thing that Cable networks can and usually don’t have the same patience for success. It could be a good show though I will wait before raising expectations.
