Fairy­tale end­ings to su­per­nat­u­ral plots

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TV -

GRIMM is a new drama se­ries in­spired by the clas­sic Grimms’ fairy­tales. The se­ries, headed David Green­walt and Jim Kouf, former big­wigs on Buffy the Vam­pire Slayer and An­gel, fol­lows the ad­ven­tures of Port­land homi­cide de­tec­tive Nick Burkhardt (David Gi­un­toli, pic­tured), who dis­cov­ers he is de­scended from an elite line of crim­i­nal pro­fil­ers known as Grimms, charged with keep­ing peace be­tween hu­man­ity and the mytho­log­i­cal crea­tures of the world. The show’s cre­ators take their in­spi­ra­tion where they find it. ‘‘We’re tak­ing lit­tle bits and pieces from a lot of fairy­tales,’’ Kouf tells zap2it.com. ‘‘So you may not ac­tu­ally recog­nise the fairy­tale we’re draw­ing from be­cause some are not that well known . . .We’ll (also) take a story from the head­lines and give it a fairy­tale-like twist.’’
