‘Grimm’ Spinoff With A Female Lead In Works At NBC
Grimm is eying a comeback. NBC is developing a spinoff from the supernatural series, which bowed out last year after six seasons. Like the original, the offshoot hails from Universal TV and Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner’s studio-based Hazy Mills Prods.

Written by Melissa Glenn (Marvel’s Iron Fist), the untitled spinoff, I hear, will center on a female Grimm. Per NBC, building off the mythology of the original series, the new show will feature returning fan favorites while also introducing new characters, new dangers and epic new mysteries. I hear no actors are currently attached but the idea is for the offshoot to feature some original cast members, regular or recurring.

Glenn executive produces with Hazy Mills’ Hayes and Milliner. Grimm co-creators/showrunners David Greenwalt and Jim Kouf will serve as consulting producers.

A Million Little Things' David Giuntoli Teases Affair Fallout, Eddie's Teetering Sobriety: 'The Stakes Are Really High'

A Million Little Things' David Giuntoli Teases Affair Fallout, Eddie's Teetering Sobriety: 'The Stakes Are Really High'
Before last week’s A Million Little Things, star David Giuntoli says, Eddie was too overwhelmed with grief to consider the possibility of everyone finding out about his affair with his dear — and also, dead — friend’s wife.

But life comes at you fast.

Whatever Happened to the Cast of “The Family?”

When thinking of The Family, don’t bother thinking about Robert De Niro or any number of crime dramas that might come to mind, this show was more about the return of a family member that was missing for 10 years and the ramifications it came with when it ramped up. Unfortunately the idea didn’t go too far since the show was canceled after just one season. The lineup was great and in fact it should have easily been enough to push just about any story, but sometimes not even a host of actors can push a plot any further than
