Strange pilots at NBC - strangely awesome!

The latest in a series of interesting and potentially awesome new-show news: NBC has selected a pilot for a new police drama, one in which characters from Grimm's fairy tales exist. Even better, this pilot comes from David Greenwalt and Jim Kouf, writers and producers of Buffy and Angel. There is no word yet on whether they have credited Terry Gilliam for 2005's film The Brothers Grimm, or Jasper Fforde for his 'Nursery Crime' series of novels.

This news comes hot on the heels of NBC's picking up the Wonder Woman pilot, which is definitely written by David E. Kelley and possibly will be directed by McG (Charlie's Angels). Also slated for fall pilots are 17th Precinct, a supernatural police drama from Ron Moore, of Battlestar Galactica fame; a series based on the semi-autobigraphical novel "Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea" by comedienne Chelsea Handler; and Smash, Steven Spielberg's hour-long drama about putting on a Broadway musical.

If only they'd picked up Bob's Burgers before Fox, or the new Sarah Michelle Gellar show, I might never need to use my remote control to change the channel again!

Or Bill Willingham for his concept of "fairy tales and fables in the modern day".
