For decades, ex-government agent Raymond “Red” Reddington (James Spader) has been one of the FBI’s Most Wanted fugitives. Now, he’s mysteriously surrendered to the FBI with an explosive offer: He will help catch a long-thought-dead terrorist under the condition that he speaks only to Elizabeth “Liz” Keen (Megan Boone), an FBI profiler fresh out of Quantico. Liz soon discovers that Red has compiled a secret list of criminals over the years: a “blacklist” of politicians, mobsters, spies, and international terrorists. He will help catch them all … with the caveat that Liz continues to work as his partner.

Who: Hugh Dancy, executive producer Bryan Fuller, executive producer/director David Slade and executive producer Martha De Laurentiis

“Revolution” (Warner Bros. Television)

Imaginative Series Hails from the Creative Minds Behind Acclaimed Series’ ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ and ‘Angel’ and Marks New Producing Project for Emmy Award Winner Sean Hayes
Universal City, Ca (June 27, 2011) Universal Media Studios will premiere the innovative supernatural television series GRIMM at this year’s Comic Con International, offering attendees an opportunity to exclusively screen the pilot episode and participate in a Q&A with the cast and creators of the upcoming fantasy series on Saturday, July 23.
GRIMM, debuting on NBC this fall, is a provocative police procedural with supernatural mythology, inspired by the classic Grimm Brother’s Fairy Tales. With an original “crime-fighting meets story-telling” premise, the series promises a new world of police work where the cases have a storybook connection, but not always happily ever after.
The inventive drama hails from writers/executive producers Jim Kouf (“Angel) and David Greenwalt (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”) and the producing team of Emmy Award winner Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner (‘Hot in Cleveland’) as executive producers.
Kouf and Greenwalt will join the full cast at the Comic Con premiere screening and panel including: David Giuntoli (“Turn The Beat Around”), Russell Hornsby (“Lincoln Heights”), Bitsie Tulloch (“Quarterlife”), Silas Weir Mitchell (“Prison Break”), Reggie Lee (“Persons Unknown”) and Sasha Roiz (“Caprica”).
