Set to be paired with Chuck on Friday nights is the upcoming fantasy-drama series Grimm, which is inspired by the classic Grimm’s Fairy Tales and sounds a bit like a darker take on your typical superhero story. Details and an intriguing preview video ahead!

Grimm follows Nick (David Guintoli), a man who finds out he’s the descendent of a group of hunters called “Grimms” whose job it is to keep humanity safe against various supernatural creatures. Right now the series is set to air on Fridays at 9:00 p.m. on NBC, which would put it up against Fringe, assuming Fox keeps that show in the same time-slot next fall. I’m curious to see how the two do up against each other or if either NBC or Fox decide to move one and share the audience of viewers who like to watch supernatural-themed shows on Friday nights.

Below is NBC’s synopsis for the series and further down is a clip from the show.

Grimm is a new drama series inspired by the classic Grimm's Fairy Tales. Remember the fairy tales your parents used to tell you before bedtime? Those weren’t stories -- they were warnings.

Nick Burkhardt (David Guintoli Turn The Beat Around) thought he prepared himself for the realities of working as a homicide detective until he started seeing things he couldn’t quite explain. When his ailing Aunt Marie (guest star Kate Burton, Grey’s Anatomy) arrives, Nick's life turns upside down when she reveals they are descendants of an elite group of hunters, also known as “Grimms,” who fight to keep the balance of humanity safe from the supernatural creatures of the world. As Nick digs deeper into her past, he realizes that he will have to shoulder the responsibility of his ancestors -- and contend with a larger-than-life mythology of the Brothers Grimm that is now all too real.

Russell Hornsby (Lincoln Heights), Bitsie Tulloch (Quarterlife), Silas Weir Mitchell (Prison Break), Reggie Lee (Persons Unknown) and Sasha Roiz (Caprica) also star. Grimm is a production of Universal Media Studios and Hazy Mills Productions. Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner (Hot in Cleveland) serve as executive producers, Jim Kouf (National Treasure, Angel) and David Greenwalt (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Angel”) are the creators/executive producers and Marc Buckland (“My Name Is Earl”) is the director.

Grimm will begin airing Fridays at 9/8c on NBC this Fall 2011.
