NBC Combines Hackneyed Fairy Tales and Hackneyed Cop Shows
- Sleeping Beauty
- Hansel and Gretel
- Little Red Riding Hood
- Snow White
- And about 200 more
The team behind the development show is a mixed bag, with Sean Hayes from "Will & Grace" executive producing a script from "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" vets David Greenwalt and Jim Kouf.
Will this concept hold up? It sounds promising, but will require a deft hand as having cops step into trite children's tales week after week doesn't sound like appointment television. However, the premise opens itself up to celeb cameos left and right. Michael Cera would make a great Hansel, but I would respectfully request that the producers kill him off by the end of the episode. (Deadline)
