NBC is giving Twitter users a sneak peek at its new series “Grimm” two weeks before the drama debuts. The network is making the first episode available to those who follow the show on Twitter.
Starting today, October 14th, the series’ followers will receive a direct message with access information to preview the October 28th premiere episode of “Grimm”. Follow @NBCGrimm here. NBC Entertainment Marketing President Len Fogge, who announced the campaign, said it’s a unique approach that matches the nature of the drama.

In addition, keep your eyes on the official “Grimm” website (along with iTunes and Hulu), where a 20-minute preview of the premiere will be available soon.
Portland homicide Detective Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli, Turn the Beat Around) discovers he is descended from an elite line of criminal profilers known as “Grimms,” charged with keeping balance between humanity and the mythological creatures of the world. As he tries to hide the dangers of his newfound calling from his fiancée, Juliette Silverton (Bitsie Tulloch, “Quarterlife”), and his partner, Hank Griffin (Russell Hornsby, “Lincoln Heights”), he becomes ever more entrenched in the ancient rivalries and alliances of the Grimm world.
With help from his confidant, Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell, “Prison Break”), a reformed Grimm creature himself, Nick must navigate through the forces of a larger-than-life mythology, facing off with Hexenbiests, Blutbads, and all manner of ancient evils, including royal lines dating back to the original profilers themselves, The Grimm Brothers. Reggie Lee (“Persons Unknown”) and Sasha Roiz (“Caprica”) also star.
“Grimm” is a Universal Television and Hazy Mills production. The series was created by Stephen Carpenter, David Greenwalt, and Jim Kouf. Naren Shankar (“CSI: Crime Scene Investigation”) and Norberto Barba (“Law & Order: Criminal Intent”) also serve as executive producers. Marc Buckland (“My Name is Earl”) directed the pilot.
