Looks like Dave Giuntoli -- Huntleigh native, St. Louis U. High grad and an alumnus of MTV's Road Rules -- just hit the big one.

Late last week, NBC made an intriguing addition to its Fall 2011 lineup:  "Grimm," a dark crime drama in which a detective (to be played by Giuntoli) comes to see himself as a protector of humans against the modern-day "beast/animals" of Grimm's Fairy Tales.

The show's creators, David Greenwalt (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Jim Kouf (Ghost Whisperer) haven't gotten much more specific than that.

Historical/Literary Aside: Disney has probably familiarized you with the gist of many Grimm fairy tales such as Snow White and Cinderella , but the original versions from the early 1800s were WAY more violent and mysterious; for a taste, click here.
