Besides the big, bad wolf, what other creatures will you be dealing with on the show?
 DAVID:  I think it is fair to say that we’ll see a Goldilocks somewhere in there at some point.  But again every creature in all of fairytales is fair game.  So we’re going to be seeing a lot of those. 
 BITSIE:  What’s so cool about the idea of it being reality and what’s so great about his gift or curse, however you want to put it, is he can see a child molester as the big, bad wolf.  He will be able to see the Three Little Pigs in three greedy lawyers.  He can see right through them.

How many people are in on Nick’s secret?
 DAVID: So far, the only two people who are revealed in the pilot episode are Nick’s aunt and Monroe.

What role does Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) play in Nick’s world?
 DAVID:  Monroe is the one outlet he has and I see it as a therapy session for Nick.   He can ask questions and make sense of things and I can only see that becoming more and more important in the show.

What is it like filming in Portland, where the show is set?
 BITSIE:  Portland’s got a natural eeriness to it.  You’ll see these dead trees growing out of the pond and they have moss amongst the snow.  It’s so drop-dead gorgeous.  I can’t believe how green it is.  It’s so wonderful!
 DAVID:  Portland is like another character on the show.  It adds this backdrop of weirdness.  Yet you could put your wallet outside and it turn into compost in an hour.  It’s constantly wet.
 BITSIE:  But we’re excited to be shooting there.  It’s a really pretty city.
