Faerie Tale Theater

Just to help folks (including me) keep things straight:

ABC - Once Upon a Time - Official Blurb: Centers on a woman with a troubled past who is drawn into a small town in Maine where the magic and mystery of Fairy Tales just may be real. Series Premiere October 23rd Sundays 8/7c

NBC - Grimm - Official Blurb: "Grimm" is a new drama series inspired by the classic Grimm's Fairy Tales.Portland homicide Detective Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli, "Turn The Beat Around") discovers he is descended from an elite line of criminal profilers known as "Grimms," charged with keeping balance between humanity and the mythological creatures of the world. Series Premiere October 28th Fridays 9/8c


Universal - Snow White and The Huntsman - Official Blurb: In a twist to the fairy tale, the Huntsman ordered to take Snow White into the woods to be killed winds up becoming her protector and mentor in a quest to vanquish the Evil Queen. This is the one with Charlize Theron and directed by Rupert Sanders. Watch the trailer at

Relativity Media - Mirror! Mirror! - This is the one with Julia Roberts (wearing a false nose... I hope) as the Evil Queen and directed by Tarsem Singh. Oh, yeah, and it seems to be some kind of Bollywood musical.

All of these seem to be taking nods from the comic book series Fables by Bill Willingham.
