Fairytale beginning for a modern Alice
the slate of fairytale driven dramas which continue to hit the large and small screen, America’s CW network is developing a contemporary reimagining of Alice In Wonderland (pictured). Wunderland hails from the production company of McG ( The OC), is penned by The Playboy Club creator Chad Hodge, and follows the adventures of a young female Los Angeles detective who discovers another world exists under the surface of this ultra-modern city. Hodge writes the script and executive produces with McG. Wunderland’s female cop procedural with fantasy elements is reminiscent of new drama series Beauty and The Beast, a reboot of the 1980s series. The reboot is yet to debut on Australian TV screens. Other shows which rely on the classics include Once Upon a Time, which moves fairytale characters to modern times and Grimm, which follows the adventures of a police detective who can see supernatural beings. A new series of Once Upon a Time debuts on Australian television in the coming weeks (Seven, Prime7). The second series of Grimm airs on pay TV (Sundays, 8.30pm, Fox8).
