Grimm Trailer

So just in case you aren't addicted to entertainment-related blogs like me (HA!!), you might not be aware that this is network upfront week, when fans learn the fate of their favorite shows and the networks announce the new series they've picked up for debut in the fall.

I am a SUCKER for re-told fairy tales, so I was immediately intrigued to read about Grimm, a "fairy tale police procedural" that NBC is going to be airing this fall. Here's a series intro (from Hitfix.com):

In this re-imagining of Grimm’s fairy tales in the 21st century, Detective Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli) discovers he’s a descendant of a group of elite hunters known as Grimms who are charged with stopping the proliferation of supernatural creatures in the world. Luckily, he gets a hand in sorting out this strange new (but old) world from Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell), who just might be more big, bad wolf than regular guy.
And a trailer:



So whaddya think? :)

Well, when NBC loses it (as they always do), maybe Syfy will pick it up, because it looks like it's better suited to Syfy's audience than NBC's. (Though . . . NBC really doesn't have an audience anymore, so maybe this will actually start drawing people back?)

Too scary-edgy for me. I couldn't even finish the preview. :)

Ruth, did you also see the video previews for Awake? I had seen Grimm which I thought would caught my attention since it's fairy-tale themed but in the end, doesn't look like something I'd watch. But on the same website, I noticed Jason Isaacs in Awake and I think it looks really interesting! Here's a link! http://www.daemonstv.com/2011/05/15/awake-nbc-first-look-with-harry-potters-jason-isaacs/

@Kaye - It'll be interesting to see how this show fares. I agree at first blush it seems more suited to SyFy, but ABC has a fairy tale-themed show coming in the fall too, so will one or both make a go of it? I'll be anxious to see how they play out. Cons: Right now this is slated for Friday night. Pros: The final season of Chuck will be the lead-in.

@Lori - This could easily end up being too dark for me too...but right now I'm still intrigued. :)

@Charleybrown - I love Jason Isaacs, but haven't paid a whole lot of attention to his new show (yet...!!). Thanks so much for the link - looks VERY interesting! And he's just great to look at anyway. :)

Sounds like it has potential!

@heidenkind - I know, I'm very curious about it - especially the "buddy" dynamic that it might have between Grimm & the "wolf" character - could be fun. :)
