Bay Street Artistic Associate KATE BURTON in GRIMM which premieres tonight!

"Grimm," which premieres Friday, October 28 on NBC at 9 pm. Nick is a self-admitted "happy-ending guy," engaged to the lovely Juliette (Bitsie Tulloch) and exchanging crime-scene quips with his partner Hank (Russell Hornsby) when the aunt who raised him (the always marvelous Kate Burton) shows up. Practically dead from cancer, she informs him that he is a Grimm, capable of seeing, and killing, monsters that pose as humans (including the one currently attacking young women wearing red hoodies). There's an old book, a family talisman, special weapons and an informative funny confidant — an evolved werewolf named Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) who is, not surprisingly, the best thing about the pilot. All of which adds up to a nice, moody, entertaining-enough hour and the troublesome question of how interesting this will be by the third episode. Joss Whedon had the tense longings of adolescence (not to mention the living nightmare of high school) to give "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" depth; in "Grimm," it will depend on the cleverness of the crimes and how effectively creators David Greenwalt (who worked on "Buffy" and its spinoff "Angel") and Jim Kouf (also "Angel") can convince us that the terrors of our childhood imaginations are actual forces of evil at work in the world.
