NBC’s ‘Alice In Wonderland’ Sequel Gets Green Lit
NBC has placed an order for their planned Alice In Wonderland sequel ‘Wonderland.’
Wonderland, which is set in the modern day is a sequel to the much loved Lewis Carroll story, which has spawned many television and movie adaptations. This modern day sequel will centre on a new character called Clara.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Seven years ago Clara’s life took an unexplained turn for the worse, but a mysterious stranger tells her there may be an explanation after all … an explanation that lies in the fantastical world of Wonderland. Determined to revive her dreams and get her life back on track, Clara agrees to wage war against the reigning but malevolent Queen, the woman we once knew as Alice.
The pilot episode is penned by Whit Anderson and executive produced by CSI creator Anthony Zuiker along with Matt Weinberg, JoAnn Alfano and Margaret Riley.
This isn’t the only Alice In Wonderland project in the works. The CW is developing a variation of the story (called Wunderland) that’s set in modern-day Los Angeles, but that title hasn’t received a pilot order and The CW might be finished with its pickups.
Networks developing projects based on the same story or theme seems to be happening a lot of late. Just last year we The CW and ABC faced off with rival Beauty and the Beast projects.
