NBC is getting into the second screen game with a new interaction companion ebook for its hit drama, Grimm.
Grimm: The Essential Guide will give fans entrée to exclusive “behind-the-scenes” content, including concept art, 3D renderings and video clips. The eBook will also offer a season 1 recap and a teaser trailer for season 2, including the introduction of a terrifying new creature.
All of this content comes just in time for viewers to whet their palates before the second season premiere on Monday.
NBC Publishing hopes that the ebook won’t just provide a supplement to the show, but will create an “entirely new ‘second-screen’ experience.” The company hopes to pave the way for television interactivity, and “bridge the gap between fan and screen.”
The Grimm interactive companion follows a growing trend of second screen ebooks. Last month, TNT launched a free interactive book through Apple’s iBookstore to accompany the fourth season of Leverage. According to the show’s executive producer and director, Dean Devlin, TNT is hoping to publish iBook companions for every season thus far
