Later this month our friends at SyFy will premiere Alice, Nick Willing’s very modern spin on Lewis Carroll’s classic tale Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland and to help whet you’re appetites they’ve send us to great clips to share with our readers.
The show stars Caterina Scorsone as Alice whose world is suddenly turned upside down when she finds herself on the other side of a looking glass in Wonderland, an outlandish city ruled by the devilish Queen of Hearts (Kathy Bates).
To maintain control of the land the Queen uses the emotions of humans – kidnaped by the White Rabbit (Alan Gray) and the army of evil Suits – to feed her citizens.
Once captured the humans are held captive in a casino where their memories are erased and their extreme emotions are drained, bottled and consumed by the people of Wonderland.
When Alice’s love Jack Chase (Philip Winchester) is kidnapped and brought to Wonderland she embarks on a thrilling journey through the bizarre world to find him and unravel the strange going’s on.
Along the way she enlists the help of some familiar characters – including Hatter (Lee Potts), White Knight (Matt Frewer), Dodo (Tim Curry), Doctors Dee and Dum (Eugene Lipinski) and Caterpillar (Harry Dean Stanton).
The dark and inventive two part drama starts Thursday 27 January at 8pm and concludes Thursday 3 February,
