NBC is going down the rabbit hole. The network has given the green light to a new pilot based on Alice in Wonderland.
This new version is created by CSI creator Anthony Zuicker and is a live-action, modernized sequel that takes some liberties with the source material.
Alice and Wonderland is “set in modern times and centers on Alice and a new character, Clara. Seven years ago, Clara’s life took an unexplained turn for the worse, and a mysterious stranger tells her there may be an explanation after all… an explanation that lies in the fantastical world of Wonderland. To revive her dreams and get her life back on track, Clara must wage war against Wonderland’s reigning Queen, the woman we once knew as Alice.”
In the new version, Alice would not be the hero.
This isn’t the only new version of Wonderland in development. The CW is working with McG and Chad Hodge to create its own contemporary version called Wunderland.
