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 weren’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 Slayer’s David Greenwalt and Jim Kouf Grimm stars Sasha Roiz, Kate Burton and Silas Weir Mitchell. Grimm will air on NBC this fall.
“Grimm” is a new drama series inspired by the classic Grimm’s Fairy Tales. Remember the fairy tales your parents used to tell you before bedtime? Those weren’t stories — they were warnings. Nick Burkhardt (David Guintoli “Turn The Beat Around”) thought he prepared himself for the realities of working as a homicide detective until he started seeing things he couldn’t quite explain. When his ailing Aunt Marie (guest star Kate Burton, “Grey’s Anatomy”) arrives, Nick’s life turns upside down when she reveals they are descendants of an elite group of hunters, also known as “Grimms,” 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 — and contend with a larger-than-life mythology of the Brothers Grimm that is now all too real. Russell Hornsby (“Lincoln Heights”), Bitsie Tulloch (“Quarterlife”), Silas Weir Mitchell (“Prison Break”), Reggie Lee (“Persons Unknown”) and Sasha Roiz (“Caprica”) also star. “Grimm” is a production of Universal Media Studios and Hazy Mills Productions. Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner (“Hot in Cleveland”) serve as executive producers, Jim Kouf (“National Treasure,” “Angel”) and David Greenwalt (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Angel”) are the creators/executive producers and Marc Buckland (“My Name Is Earl”) is the director.
