In an attempt to get audiences excited for their new fall lineup NBC has released previews for several of their programs. Included in the roster is a very promising entry for Grimm. Grimm is a supernatural drama about a detective descended from a long line of hunters named Grimm. The Grimm family has a special ability and can see fairytale monsters hiding in reality, hence why the Brothers Grimm wrote so many dark fairytales.
Only they werenâ€™t just fairytales, they were warnings to the world about what really lurks inside the deep dark forests. In the clip a young woman goes out for a jog in the woods while wearing her red hoodie and what happens next should be no surprise to those familiar with the story of Little Red Riding Hood. Directed by Marc Buckland and written by Buffy the Vampire Slayerâ€™s David Greenwalt and Jim Kouf Grimm stars Sasha Roiz, Kate Burton and Silas Weir Mitchell. Grimm will air on NBC this fall.
â€śGrimmâ€ť is a new drama series inspired by the classic Grimmâ€™s Fairy Tales. Remember the fairy tales your parents used to tell you before bedtime? Those werenâ€™t stories â€” they were warnings. Nick Burkhardt (David Guintoli â€śTurn The Beat Aroundâ€ť) thought he prepared himself for the realities of working as a homicide detective until he started seeing things he couldnâ€™t quite explain. When his ailing Aunt Marie (guest star Kate Burton, â€śGreyâ€™s Anatomyâ€ť) arrives, Nickâ€™s life turns upside down when she reveals they are descendants of an elite group of hunters, also known as â€śGrimms,â€ť who fight to keep the balance of humanity safe from the supernatural creatures of the world. As Nick digs deeper into her past, he realizes that he will have to shoulder the responsibility of his ancestors â€” and contend with a larger-than-life mythology of the Brothers Grimm that is now all too real. Russell Hornsby (â€śLincoln Heightsâ€ť), Bitsie Tulloch (â€śQuarterlifeâ€ť), Silas Weir Mitchell (â€śPrison Breakâ€ť), Reggie Lee (â€śPersons Unknownâ€ť) and Sasha Roiz (â€śCapricaâ€ť) also star. â€śGrimmâ€ť is a production of Universal Media Studios and Hazy Mills Productions. Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner (â€śHot in Clevelandâ€ť) serve as executive producers, Jim Kouf (â€śNational Treasure,â€ť â€śAngelâ€ť) and David Greenwalt (â€śBuffy the Vampire Slayer,â€ť â€śAngelâ€ť) are the creators/executive producers and Marc Buckland (â€śMy Name Is Earlâ€ť) is the director.
