“Grimm” on NBC.com
Anybody take advantage of NBC’s offer to its “Grimm” Twitter followers to watch the pilot early? We got our hands on the code to do so and will have a story with our first impressions up shortly, but in the meantime here are three new TV spots (granted, they’re all a bit similar) that’ll give you a good idea of what to expect.
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.
