Prime Time Crime: Watch a Preview for Grimm, New on NBC This Fall

Grimm (NBC)

One of the new shows NBC has announced for its Fall 2011 television season is Grimm, a crime drama in which the characters are based on, or adapted from, those in the Grimm Fairy Tales.

Remember the fairy tales your parents used to tell you before bedtime? Well, those weren't stories, they were warnings.

Detective Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli) thought he was ready for the grim reality of working homicide in Portland, Oregon. That is, until he started to see things ... things he couldn't quite explain. Like a gorgeous woman suddenly transforming into a hideous hag, or an average Joe turning into a vicious troll. Then, after a panicked visit from his only living relative, Nick discovers the truth about his visions: he's not like everyone else, he's a descendant of an elite group of hunters known as "Grimms" who are charged with stopping the proliferation of supernatural creatures in the world. And so begins his new life journey -- albeit a reluctant one at first -- as he solves crimes with his partner who knows something about Nick has radically changed but can't quite put his finger on it. Along the way, Nick finds himself unexpectedly getting help on some of the more difficult cases from Monroe, a guy who seems normal at first but is soon revealed to be what you might call a "big bad wolf." Literally!

While the Brothers Grimm wrote fairy tales that children have adored for generations, imagine if the villains were real, and Nick was the only one who could stop them.

Grimm is scheduled to air on Fridays at 9 PM (ET/PT). Watch a preview for the series below. You can find previews of all of NBC's series on its website.
