When I first saw the new headline, I thought this was the same series I'd written about before (Once Upon a Time Coming to ABC) until I investigated further. Nope, different project and I don't know the status of the ABC one.
From 'Buffy' writers sell Grimm's Fairy Tales pilot to NBC by James Hibberd:
NBC has picked up another pilot mixing fantasy with a crime drama: The network has greenlit Grimm, described as a “dark but fantastical cop drama about a world in which characters inspired by Grimm’s Fairy Tales exist.” (Gotta love mining expired copyrights in the public domain!).So the real question is are you more interested in a series from the producers of Lost or one by the writers for Buffy and Angel?
The project is from Jim Kouf (Angel) and David Greenwalt (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), with executive producers Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner.
And my question is: Will we actually see two fairy tale based series on two different networks? Hmmmm....
