Upfronts 2012: Watch a preview of 'Beauty and the Beast'

May 17, 2012 |  1:35 pm

"Beauty and the Beast"
Fairy tales are hot right now, with "Once Upon a Time" and "Grimm" getting second seasons from ABC and NBC, respectively. Now it's the CW's turn with its updating of "Beauty and the Beast."

The new version stars Kristin Kreuk as a police detective who comes in contact with an enigmatic doctor, played by Jay Ryan, who has a Hulk-like tendency to turn into a beast when he's enraged. This beast doctor was the detective's secret savior from would-be killers years before, but now they're teaming up to solve crimes. (And do a little smoochie-smoochie -- this is the CW, after all).

The series, created by "Brothers & Sisters" co-executive producers Sherri Cooper and Jennifer Levin, also stars Max Brown, Nina Lisandrello, Nicole Gale Anderson, Austin Basis and Brian White. It airs Thursdays at 9 p.m.
