NBC has announced that the supernatural pilot Grimm, starring David Guintoli as a homicide detective who encounters strange creatures right out of the Grimms' mythology, has been picked up for the fall season.

Grimm has a promising pedigree--it's from David Greenwalt, co-creator of Angel, and Angel alumnus Jim Kouf, who's also known for hit screenplays like National Treasure and Rush Hour. The series will air on Fridays, after Chuck.

Here's the official description from the network:

Grimm is a new drama series inspired by the classic Grimm's Fairy Tales. Remember the fairy tales your parents used to tell you before bedtime? Those weren't stories--they were warnings. Nick Burkhardt (David Guintoli, Turn The Beat Around) thought he prepared himself for the realities of working as a homicide detective until he started seeing things he couldn't quite explain. When his ailing Aunt Marie (guest star Kate Burton, Grey's Anatomy) arrives, Nick's life turns upside down when she reveals they are descendants of an elite group of hunters, also known as "Grimms," who fight to keep the balance of humanity safe from the supernatural creatures of the world. As Nick digs deeper into her past, he realizes that he will have to shoulder the responsibility of his ancestors--and contend with a larger-than-life mythology of the Brothers Grimm that is now all too real.

Russell Hornsby (Lincoln Heights), Bitsie Tulloch (Quarterlife), Silas Weir Mitchell (Prison Break), Reggie Lee (Persons Unknown), and Sasha Roiz (Caprica) also star. Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner (Hot In Cleveland) serve as executive producers, Jim Kouf (National Treasure, Angel) and David Greenwalt (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel) are the creators/executive producers, and Marc Buckland (My Name Is Earl) is the director.

Grimm sounds like an interesting concept. Too bad it is airing on the same time as Fringe. Thank heaven for DVRs.

You’d think they could at least MENTION Supernatural on the CW, since they are pretty blatantly ripping it off. Geez.

I rarely leave comments, but i did some searching and wound
up here Grimm Goes to Series. And I do have a couple of questions for you if
you don’t mind. Could it be only me or does it look like a few of the responses appear like written by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting at additional sites, I would like to follow anything new you have to post. Would you list of the complete urls of your community sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
