Pilot Scoop: NBC's Grimm Grabs Mer's Mom

Acting vet Kate Burton (a.k.a. Mer’s late mom on Grey’s Anatomy) has joined the cast of NBC’s very promising drama pilot Grimm, which is being described as a fantastical cop drama in which characters from Grimm’s Fairy Tales exist.

Created by David Greenwalt (Profit) and Jim Kouf (Angel), Grimm revolves around Nick (David Giuntoli), a cop who starts to see some humans for what they actually are — animals/beasts — and realizes it’s his destiny to protect society from them.

Burton will play Nick’s aunt, who possesses some dark secrets of her own. Despite being billed simply as a “special guest star” in the pilot, there’s a strong chance Burton’s character will recur — should Grimm be picked up to series.

The cast also includes Silas Weir Mitchell (Prison Break), Russell Hornsby (Lincoln Heights) and Bitsie Tulloch (Quarterlife).
