POTATO ON THE GO BULLETIN (TV):
Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Little Pigs, Cinderella, Hansel and Gretel, The Pied Piper—these are all fairy tales we were told as children. Written by the Brothers Grimm, this collection of classic fairy tales plays inspiration for Jack TV and Chase’s newest fantasy drama, Grimm.
Airing on Fridays @ 9 PM beginning This April, Grimm follows homicide Detective Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli) who after his aunt falls ill starts seeing things he cannot explain. Receiving a key that unlocks a trailer holding his family’s secret, Nick learns that he is a descendant of the Grimms, an elite line of criminal profilers charged with keeping the balance between the mythological world and the human world. With his new found outlook on life he is able to identify the mythological beings as they shift to show him their true form.
Hiding his discovery from those around him, it’s not long before he realizes that his new mission puts his girlfriend Juliette (Bitsie Tulloch) in danger as the realm of fantasy tries to cross over.
Offering a helping hand is his partner Hank Griffin (Russel Hornsby) who may not know about Nick’s Grimm abilities but is just as determined to solve cases. Another unlikely ally lies in Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell), a reformed Blutbad (wolf) that teaches and guides Nick through the dangerous mythological world he has yet to fully encounter.
