Hey it’s a new cop drama. Wait, no, never mind it’s a show about Grimm’s Fairy Tales. Um nope wrong again it’s both. Yeah that’s right I said both. I don’t know if David Greenwalt and Jim Kouf are brilliant or crazy. We all know that cop dramas are television gold these days. However genre television, while often fanyboytastic and convention friendly, are often where ratings go to die. So maybe by bringing the two together NBC has found a loophole, maybe.
Grimm stars David Giuntoli, Russell Hornsby, Sasha Ruiz, Reggie Lee, Bitsie Tulloch, and Silas Weir Mitchell as the reformed big bad wolf Eddy Munroe. The official breakdown is:
Set in present-day Portland, Oregon, the series puts a new twist on the stories of the Brothers Grimm in which a homicide detective learns that he is a descendent of a group of hunters known as “Grimms,” who fight to keep humanity safe from the supernatural creatures of the world. Upon learning of his destiny and that he is the last of his kind, he has to protect every living soul from the sinister storybook characters that have infiltrated the real world.
Grimm premieres on October 21st at 9pm Eastern Time.
