NBC's new crime drama "Grimm" is inspired by the classic Grimm's Fairy Tales. The show focuses on Detective Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli), who traces his roots to a race of criminal profilers tasked with keeping the human and mythological world in check.

As Nick digs deeper into the past, he realizes he must contend with a larger-than-life mythology of the Brothers Grimm that is now all too real.

Russell Hornsby, Bitsie Tulloch, Silas Weir Mitchell, Reggie Lee and Sasha Roiz also star. "Grimm" premieres at 9/8 central on NBC.
