Created by David Greenwalt (Profit) and Jim Kouf (Angel), the project is described as a fantastical cop drama in which characters from Grimm’s Fairy Tales exist. The story revolves around a cop (played by David Giuntoli of MTV’s Turn the Beat Around) who starts to see some humans for what they actually are — animals/beasts — and realizes it’s his destiny to protect society from them. Mitchell will play the series’ “lead creature,” a reformed big, bad wolf (per Deadline).
Grimm just the other day received props from Adrian Pasdar, who starred on Greenwalt’s famously fantastic yet short-lived Fox series. “[It is] just as good [as Profit],” he effused. “It’s amazing.”
In addition to his twitchy Prison Break persona, Mitchell has guested on numerous series, including 24, Burn Notice and My Name Is Earl.
