Grimm: Co-Creators David Greenwalt & Jim Kouf Preview February Episodes

With fantasy legends and fairy tales arguably more popular than ever NBC offers Friday night audiences classic fables inspired by The Brothers Grimm, reinterpreted by series co-creators and genre masters David Greenwalt and Jim Kouf, on Grimm . Last week both Executive Producers took questions in a conference-call, I was lucky to be a part of, celebrating the series' strong Friday ratings and previewing some exciting guest appearances coming up throughout the month of February. Will & Jake Grimm authored a little over two hundred stories, but as David Greenwalt explains, "Some of them are a little hard to adapt. Our conceit is that all the writers of fairy tales were in fact some kind of profilers." Still, with such pop-culture prominence of late one can't help but wonder about the underlying cause for the recent resurgence of fairy tale and fantasy fare. "Two words," David (amusedly) surmises, "Public Domain - at least from a business point of view." Continuing, "People love these stories, and there’s a reason they’ve been handed down in both written and oral form all these hundreds of years and they still have an appeal. On Grimm , we're not only fracturing old fairytales, we're telling stories about what's going on today framed in a fairy tale context." Jim Kouf adds, "It gives us the opportunity to explain human behavior in a very bizarre way." Read More... http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/tvovermind/tvnews/~3/-a2-bXccwBk/121468

'Grimm' sneak peek: The human factory

But if the preview for Friday's (Feb. 3) episode is any indication, the haunted procedural is going even darker.In the minute-long video, Nick (David Giuntoli) and Hank (Russell Hornsby) are called to investigate a home that has a terrifying collection in one of the rooms. It's shelves upon shelves of human organs that are being dried out like beef jerky. "Some cultures use animal organs to make medicines and aphrodisiacs," Nick explains. This causes Hank to question, "So what if animal liver is good, a human one must be better?" Ewww.The episode is appropriately titled "Organ Grinder." It airs at 9 p.m. ET.Here's the preview.... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/02/grimm-sneak-peek-the-human-factory.html
