Awake

With May sweeps fully upon us, and most shows ending their seasons with a bang, it is only natural that we start to see previews for shows coming in the fall.

The four most anticipated shows are NBC‘s Grimm and Awake along with Fox‘s Alcatraz and Terra Nova.

Below you will find a description of each of the show’s, along with an amazing new trailer for each. I’m most looking forward to Grimm and Alcatraz … what about you?

GRIMM

“Grimm” is a new drama series inspired by the classic Grimm’s Fairy Tales. Remember the fairy tales your parents used to tell you before bedtime? Those weren’t stories — they were warnings. Nick Burkhardt (David Guintoli “Turn The Beat Around”) thought he prepared himself for the realities of working as a homicide detective until he started seeing things he couldn’t quite explain. When his ailing Aunt Marie (guest star Kate Burton, “Grey’s Anatomy”) arrives, Nick’s life turns upside down when she reveals they are descendants of an elite group of hunters, also known as “Grimms,” who fight to keep the balance of humanity safe from the supernatural creatures of the world. As Nick digs deeper into her past, he realizes that he will have to shoulder the responsibility of his ancestors — and contend with a larger-than-life mythology of the Brothers Grimm that is now all too real. Russell Hornsby (“Lincoln Heights”), Bitsie Tulloch (“Quarterlife”), Silas Weir Mitchell (“Prison Break”), Reggie Lee (“Persons Unknown”) and Sasha Roiz (“Caprica”) also star. “Grimm” is a production of Universal Media Studios and Hazy Mills Productions. Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner (“Hot in Cleveland”) serve as executive producers, Jim Kouf (“National Treasure,” “Angel”) and David Greenwalt (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Angel”) are the creators/executive producers and Marc Buckland (“My Name Is Earl”) is the director.

NBC Fall Schedule Announced

And NBC is the first out of the gate with it’s Fall 2011 tv schedule!

While they renewed fan-favorite Chuck for a fifth and finale season (and moved it to Friday nights), they also axed alot of shows and have a lot to fill.

So, let’s get right into it.

As you can see below, there are a LOT new shows coming out with returning shows being juggled around. Not only has Chuck been moved to Fridays, but Parks & Recreation was moved to the lead-in for The Office at 8:30, and the new comedy Whitney getting the coveted post-Office slot at 9:30pm. These are all risky moves, but if NBC can grab people’s attention, it could be worth the risk.

Personally, I am most excited for are Free Agents on Wednesdays, Grimm on Fridays and Awake to premiere mid-season.

Take a look at NBC‘s new schedule below the jump, and let us know what you are looking forward to this coming fall!
