PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- The Governor's Office of Film and Television has confirmed the NBC series "Grimm" will film on location in Oregon this summer.

The Oregonian reports the series filmed its pilot episode in Portland this spring and was picked up for the NBC fall 2011 schedule.

Vince Porter is executive director of the governor's film office. Porter says production is expected to begin in Portland in mid-July, with at least 200 people working fulltime on the show.

"Grimm" is a fantasy-crime series hybrid about a Portland homicide detective who discovers he's descended from a long line of hunters who have the ability to see the kind of supernatural creatures made popular in Grimm's Fairy Tales.
