In just a few short weeks ABC will premiere the highly anticipated new series ‘Once Upon A Time in Wonderland,’ the show from the creative minds that introduced audiences to ABC’s “Once Upon a Time,” Edward Kitsis & Adam Horowitz (“Lost,” “Tron: Legacy”), and Zack Estrin (“The River”).
ABC released the first trailer for the series (shown above), the new show is a different take on the classic “Alice in Wonderland” story. “Once Upon a Time in Wonderland” will take you through the looking glass in a modern take on a beloved fable that’s brimming with wonder, magic and unspeakable danger.
In Victorian England, young and beautiful Alice (Sophie Lowe) tells an impossible tale of a strange new land that exists on the other side of a rabbit hole. An invisible cat, a hookah-smoking caterpillar and playing cards that can talk are just some of the fantastic things she’s seen during her adventure. Surely this troubled girl must be insane. Her doctors intend to cure her with a treatment that will make her forget — everything. Alice seems ready to put it all behind her, especially the painful memory of the genie she fell in love with and lost forever, the handsome and mysterious Cyrus (Peter Gadiot). But in her heart Alice knows this world is real, and just in the nick of time the sardonic Knave of Hearts (Michael Socha) and the irrepressible White Rabbit (John Lithgow) arrive to save her from her fate. Together the trio will take a tumble down the rabbit hole to a Wonderland where nothing is impossible.
“Once Upon a Time in Wonderland” stars Sophie Lowe (“Beautiful Kate”) as Alice, Michael Socha (“This Is England”) as The Knave of Hearts, Peter Gadiot (“The Forbidden Girl”) as Cyrus, Emma Rigby (“Prisoners Wives”) as The Red Queen, with Naveen Andrews (“Lost”) as Jafar and John Lithgow (“3rd Rock from the Sun”) as the voice of The White Rabbit. The series will premiere on October 10 at 8/7c
