Breaking: NBC Orders Brothers Grimm-Themed Drama From Buffy Scribe

Former Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel auteur David Greenwalt’s next TV show is going to be Grimm (yes, with a capital G).

NBC has just greenlit a pilot for the Greenwalt-produced Grimm, a fantastical cop drama about a world in which characters inspired by Grimm’s Fairy Tales exist. Fellow Angel scribe Jim Kouf will co-write the script and both will serve as exec producers. Also serving as EPs are Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner, the duo behind TV Land’s red-hot Hot in Cleveland.

    Sounds like an episode of Supernatural xD

  2. Jordy says:

    Jess-& Supernatural is damn good!!

    This sounds awesome. Grimm stories are fantastic & David is great. This will definitely make it on my DVR list for sure.

  3. Jenny says:

    Sounds like a Jasper Fforde Jack Spratt book, honestly. Detective, nursery rhyme/fairy tale world…

  4. GLuisa88 says:

    I was interested until the line “cop-drama”… hmmm, now I’m not so sure!

  5. Wayne Beamer says:

    WOW! I know Fables had been optioned for a TV series a while back… Now this? Hmmm.

  6. Kate says:

    I trust David! Plus this sounds interesting, something that i will defo be wanting to see!

  7. Merri says:

    This sound like an awesome idea for NBC to screw up!

  8. ErixN says:

    I’m interested.

    OMIGOD- really!? This sounds awesome! I love knew fantasy shows! …especially if they’re written by Buffy crew. :)

    If anyone can pull it off, it’s Greenwalt. Besides the Buffy & Angel creds, he worked on two other shows I loved – Miracles and most especially Profit.

  11. Matt says:

    I’d rather see Fables on a station like AMC. As it is, if this is a success and someone actually makes Fables happen, people will say it’s a ripoff of Grimm

    …. but we’ll know better! ;-)

  12. David says:

    Where is Joss? :( He would be great for this.

  13. madhatter360 says:

    Does anyone else read the Nursery Crime series by Jasper Fforde? This seems awfully derivative of that.

  14. amy says:

    I will definitely give this a chance. I’ve always believed Greenwalt deserved a lot more of the credit for the excellence of the first years of BTVS and ATS than he has received.

      I’m definitely curious as to the actors that will be cast. I’d love to see Enver from Dollhouse. Pretty sure he and Joss are still friends, and prob. recommend people.

  15. Megan says:

    There are more than enough cop dramas, there doesn’t need to be another one no matter how “different” it is. I’m already bored just thinking about it.

  16. Lucy says:

    My first thought was the Jasper Fforde novels too.

  17. jed17 says:

    Isn’t Ron Moore of BSG/Caprica fame doing the same thing on NBC called the 17th Precint? It is described as a cop drama w/ supernatural elements…like an adult Harry Potter. Weird?

  18. Miranda says:

    I was excited until I heard it was a cop drama.

  19. Lindsay says:

    Sounds like they are ripping off Supernatural.

  20. Omegakillah says:

    i guess this could be a good show… a new show that i must watch..
