Grimm has yet to debut on our televisions, but that doesn't mean you can't start getting into the fairy-tale procedural now. NBC presented the new program with a 2011 San Diego Comic-Con panel moderated by Anthony Stewart Head of Buffy the Vampire Slayer!

Play the video below for a look:

Highlights of the (brief) panel:

  • Hey, it's Giles!
  • They showed the entirety of the pilot at the actual panel, but of course they're not going to put that part online. NBC is nice but not that nice.
  • In addition to "wolves and pigs" from the Grimm Brothers fairy tales, there will be creatures from other cultures' stories.
  • The format of the show will combine self-contained episodes with a long-arc story.
  • Stories that will appear on the show include: "Goldilocks and the Three Bears," "The Three Little Wolves" and "Cinderella" -- but all will have some sort of twist.
  • Head will only appear on the show if they can get him, but Grimm does want the guy (who wouldn't?).
  • They've only filmed one episode so far.
  • Bitsie Tulloch thinks that Portland (where Grimm will be filmed) has a "built-in eeriness."
  • Did you know that, in the original "Cinderella," the evil stepsisters had their eyes gouged out in the end? Because, ick.
  • Bludbaden means "blood baths" in German.
  • Portland is riddled with monsters.

Grimm star David Guintoli:

OK, it doesn't rain that much in Portland...
