The cast and crew of NBC’s Friday night hit, Grimm, have become deeply attached to their production home, Portland, Oregon – so much so that they have created the Grimmster endowment for Portland’s  OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital.

The endowment is to be used to provide ‘children and families critical support associated with uncompensated care, travel, lodging and other services integral to the care and comfort of the most vulnerable patients.’

A fundraising event – called the ‘Grimm Gala’ has already sold out, but fans of the show are ‘to support the endowment by making a donation or by participating in an exclusive online auction of memorabilia from the show. ”

Comcast/NBC have completely underwritten the Grimm Gala so that all fund raised will go directly to the Grimmster Endowment. Follow the jump for details.

GRIMM: You Gotta Have Heart, And A Liver and…!

How many network shows can say that their breakout character is a blutbad [werewolf]?

NBC’s Grimm [Fridays, 10/9C] is, ostensibly about a cop who discovers that Grimm’s Fairytales were fact – and has to deal with the descendants of those long-ago stories, but Silas Weir Mitchell’s Clockmaker – and reformed blutbad – gets most of the best moments. Check out Monroe’s Greatest Hits, above, and then check out two scenes from this week’s episode of Grimm, Organ Grinder.

PREVIEW of Grimm on NBC

The good news is that supernatural-themed sci-fi dramas have been making a comeback on broadcast TV, which is terrific for those of us who want to avoid the constant onslaught of reality series and even more standard cop dramas.  The bad news is that NBC decided to make a bonehead move and schedule their new series GRIMM opposite two other already established shows within the same genre, CW’s  “Supernatural”  and FOX’s  “Fringe.”   Considering that the pool of viewers usually drawn to such shows is already rather small and currently fractured between  Supernatural  and  Fringe,  adding a third player into this mix makes no sense at all. Rather than trying to fracture the small pool even further, it would have made more sense to capture a greater sample of this genre’s available viewers by scheduling opposite, well, anything else the rest of the week that isn’t sci-fi!

The premise of GRIMM puts a new twist on the fairytales of the Brothers Grimm by having a homicide detective learn that he is a descendant of a group of hunters known as “grimms” whose job is to keep humanity safe from the supernatural creatures of the world living among us.  The addition of the supernatural element certainly puts a twist on the typical cop procedural show.  The real Brothers Grimm created their fairytales in the early 1800s.  While we are certainly familiar with the cleaned up versions of Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, The Princess and the Frog, Hansel and Gretel, and Rapunzel (to name a few), many of these original tales had dark, gruesome and macabre elements.  It is this scary element that GRIMM will be trying to capture.
