First Look At NBC’s Grimm

As NBC kicks off its upfront presentations today in New York City, the network has released the first look at several of its new series, including Grimm, the fantasy police procedural created by Jim Kouf (Angel) and David Greenwalt (Buffy the Vampire Slayer).

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.

The drama will air Fridays at 9 p.m. ET/PT following Chuck (on its new night).

    I can`t believe that in 3 minutes they already managed to puck in “This is no fairy tale!” I`m sorry, but this looks like a bad chapter of Torchwood made in the US…

     This show could be something interesting. . 

  • mom2krisandleigha

    Ummm this show sounds exactly like Supernatural?

  • Anonymous

    this could something special.

    I’m a huge Supernatural fan, but I think I can see some major differences in that this is strictly “Grimm’s Fairy Tales.” Still, though. Supernatural is my favorite.

    Sigh, so Grimm will be competing with Fringe & Supernatural on Fridays.

     Seriously you chose this over 17th Presinct, I’m sure you’ll mishandle this one and have it canceled after a season.. Well done NBC well done

  • Jacob

     And they share a timeslot. Supernatural will probably destroy this show.

  • Jacob

    Because you saw the 17th Precinct pilot? You know it’s better? For all you know it could have been utter garbage.

    True but I am entitled to be a loyal Ronald Moore fan, and I am entitled to my opinion. I never said this would be crap but as a fan I am allowed to voice my opinion at being upset it wasn’t picked up as well or instead

    Buffy + Supernatural + NBC = Hesitation, but worth a look.
