'Grimm' premiere episode unfolds at Comic-Con

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- "Grimm" plans to turn fairytales on their heads.

After previewing the first episode of NBC's upcoming storytelling-meets-crimefighting procedural, which is loosely based on Little Red Riding Hood, the "Grimm" cast and crew promised Comic-Con attendees that other bedtime stories would be transformed into supernatural cases, including the Three Little Pigs, Cinderella and Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

Jim Kouf and David Greenwalt, the show's writers and executive producers, said the show would solve a fairytale-inspired crime each week, but Greenwalt added there would be "arcs for all the characters and terrible things are going to happen to them."

The show takes place and will be filmed in Portland, Ore. Actress Bitsie Tulloch said the town is the perfect setting for the mythological procedural because it has a "built-in eeriness."
