'Grimm' cast: It's 'CSI' meets 'Buffy'

With writers from Buffy the Vampire Slayer on board, the cast of NBC’s Grimm is excited for fans of that series to check out their procedural with a, um, grim twist.

Grimm is fantastic and I think the first thing that drew me was that it’s a cop procedural, like CSI. However, it’s really done a really great job putting in this whole other element and we’ll get this whole other audience who like genre stuff, like Buffy and Angel,” says star David Giuntoli, who plays gifted Det. Nick Burkhardt.

    Sasha Roiz was one of the things I liked best about SyFy’s “Caprica.” I didn’t realize he was going to be in “Grimm,” so now I’m looking forward to this show even more!

      EW please write about “Switched at Birth” – it is the best show on tv right now!!!!!!

        Geez, do you really need to post this on every story? I watched a couple episodes of that show and found it formulaic, poorly acted, and even more poorly written. If EW started recapping it, I’d question their taste.

      Seconded that I’m in for Sasha.

    Buffy/Angel writers don’t equal excellent and groundbreaking. Yes, Marni, Jane, David, et al are brilliant writers in their own right, but on Buffy and Angel, they were working within the framework of Joss Whedon’s vision.

      I agree. Wasting talent is something that television excels at. Without a proper direction and framework, everyone just spins their wheels.

    I’m so stoked to see my friend David Giuntoli star in his first series! Go David! It sounds like a really good show, too. I can’t wait to see it.

    I was expecting it to be a serial, not procedural. It’s much less interesting to me now.
