'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.
