Buffy Producers Sell Fairy-Tale Cop Drama to NBC


NBC has green-lit a pilot for Grimm, "a dark but fantastical cop drama" set in a world in which characters inspired by Grimm’s Fairy Tales exist. Intrigued yet? The project comes from Jim Kouf (Angel) and David Greenwalt (Buffy the Vampire Slayer). We're interested! NBC also recently picked up Ron Moore's 17th Precinct, a show that focuses on cops working in a town where people also have magical powers. We probably don't need two cop-fantasy-crossover dramas, so may the best series not get canceled. [Inside TV/EW]
