In Grimm, Homicide Detective Nick Burkhardt of the Portland Police Bureau learns he is descended from a line of ‘guardians’ known as ‘Grimms,’ charged with keeping balance between humanity and the mythological creatures called ‘Wesen’. Throughout the episodes, he must battle against an assortment of dangerous creatures, with help from his friend Monroe (who is a reformed creature), and his partner Detective Hank Griffin.
‘Grimm’s blend of humor and horror make it an ideal series to work on with our longtime partners at Dynamite, who have a knack for this kind of storytelling.’ said Chris Lucero, Director of Licensing for NBCUniversal Television Consumer Products. ‘We look forward to exploring the series’ deep mythology; telling exciting tales that will broaden the Grimm universe for fans, everywhere.’
