Dear NBC

Just in case the series takes off and people get ideas… I had the Grimms first. Tttthhhhppppptttt

Grimm (starts this fall)

My Grimm started two years ago this fall.

The info I saw was…

“Remember the fairy tales your parents used to tell you before bedtime? Well, those weren’t stories, they were warnings.

Detective Nick Burkhardt thought he was ready for the grim reality of working homicide in Portland, Oregon. That is, until he started to see things… things he couldn’t quite explain. Like a gorgeous woman suddenly transforming into a hideous hag, or an average Joe turning into a vicious troll. Then, after a panicked visit from his only living relative, Nick discovers the truth about his visions: he’s not like everyone else, he’s a descendant of an elite group of hunters known as “Grimms” who are charged with stopping the proliferation of supernatural creatures in the world. And so begins his new life journey – albeit a reluctant one at first – as he solves crimes with his partner who knows something about Nick has radically changed but can’t quite put his finger on it. Along the way, Nick finds himself unexpectedly getting help on some of the more difficult cases from Monroe, a guy who seems normal at first but is soon revealed to be what you might call a “big bad wolf.” Literally!

While the Brothers Grimm wrote fairy tales that children have adored for generations, imagine if the villains were real, and Nick was the only one who could stop them.”

From executive producers David Greenwalt (Angel, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Jim Kouf (Angel, National Treasure) comes a new world of police work where all cases have a storybook connection… but not always happily ever after.”

My Grimm? Same premise…although they aren’t cops.

Greta didn’t get her happy ending her first time around. And now that she’s a Grimm—special kind of guardian angel and official ass-kicker in the paranormal world—romance is hard to find. Besides, there’s only ever been one man who made her heart race, and the fact that he did scared her right out of his arms. Now Rip is back. And just in time too, because Greta needs his help.

On a mission he knows is going to test all of his strengths and skills, the last person Rip expected to see is the one woman who broke his heart. Working together seems to be their only hope. But, when faced with a danger neither of them anticipated, the question is, how will they face the danger to their hearts—assuming they survive, of course.

  1. 🙁 You might want to have your agent contact someone legal about this so that later it doesn’t come around and bite you somewhere unpleasant.

  2. It can’t. Mine have copyrighted dates of their release and everything so there’s no way anybody can claim I swiped the idea. Candy Houses, the first in the series, released in Fall 2009, two years before this tv show (it doesn’t start until fall).

  3. I like your Grimm better Shi!! do you think someone read Candy Houses and jumped from there or do you think it’s a coincidence?

  4. At least we know where the idea came from. If we decide to watch the tv show, it won’t be as good as your books, but probably very different. I’ve seen some other books pop up as Grimm books when you put it in as the subject. New ideas always create copycats. I never saw the movie, but wasn’t Tangled from an older story like Rapunzel or something? Doesn’t mean the movie wasn’t good, just a different point of view or twist.

  5. It’s not necessarily a copycat, Christina. As I told Gina, there’s always cross-over in ideas. This is just weird how similar they are.

  6. It’s very weird how similar they are. I know there’s a lot of crossover in ideas but IO had the same thought as Gina when I read your post. I’ll be checking out this show for sure. 😀
