SDCC 2013: ABC's "Once Upon a Time In Wonderland" Series Premiere Set For October
The creative minds that brought you ABC's "Once Upon a Time" Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, and Zack Estrin ("The River"), bring a fantastical, epic adventure to life with an exciting new twist on the classic "Alice In Wonderland" story. Make a very important date to step through the looking glass for a modern take on a beloved fable brimming with wonder, magic and unspeakable danger.
In Victorian England, the young and beautiful Alice (Sophie Lowe) tells a 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 talk are just some of the fantastic things she's seen during this impossible adventure. Surely this troubled girl must be insane and her doctors aim 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 deep down 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 a doomed fate. Together, the trio will take a tumble down the rabbit hole to this Wonderland where nothing is impossible.
"Once Upon a Time In Wonderland" stars Sophie Lowe ("Beautiful Kate") as Alice, Michael Socha ("This Is England") as Knave of Hearts, Peter Gadiot ("The Forbidden Girl") as Cyrus, Emma Rigby ("Hollyoaks") as The Red Queen and John Lithgow ("Third Rock From The Sun") as the voice of the White Rabbit.
