Seriously, is it me or is horror exploding on TV? One of my biggest gripes with horror movies is that they don’t spend enough time developing characters — before they’re “offed”. The more you care, the most of an impact it has. This is why I LOVE the idea of horror-themed TV, a place with infinite possibilities when it comes to character development (which is why I was slightly disappointed with the first season of “The Walking Dead”).
NBC is getting into the mix as they’ve 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.”
EW reports that the project is from Jim Kouf (“Angel”) and David Greenwalt (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”), with executive producers Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner. The order comes on top of “Battlestar” guru Ron Moore’s “17th Precinct,” also at NBC, about cops working a town where people have magical powers. Being that it’s NBC, don’t expect any gore like in “True Blood,” but maybe there’s something compelling to be told?
Either way, I’d like to think Adam Green (Hatchet, Frozen) is reading this going, “what the F*CK?” Read on to watch his short film “Fairy Tale Police.” Hmmmmmmm.
