The CW Heading To 'Wunderland'

Taking a plunge down the rabbit hole, The CW is developing a contemporary reimagining of Lewis Carroll's beloved Alice In Wonderland, entitled Wunderland.

Written by The Playboy Club creator Chad Hodge and produced by feature film director McG's fittingly named company Wonderland Sound And Vision, the project follows the story of a young female detective in modern-day Los Angeles who discovers another world that exists under the surface of the city. Sounds like she stumbled upon an underground nightclub or something.

Alice in Wonderland

Since the release of the 1951 animated film, Alice has been most closely associated with Walt Disney Pictures, which also released Tim Burton's outlandish vision of the well-known tale in 2010. In addition, characters from the book have been featured on Disney-owned ABC's fairytale drama Once Upon A Time.

The police procedural with a fantasy twist is a similar premise to the CW's new fall drama, a reboot of the 1980s series Beauty And The Beast, and is one of two public domain properties the network has in development for next season. The other is called Sleepy Hollow, a current-day take on Washington Irving's classic short story The Legend of Sleepy Hollow described as a boundary-pushing horror story for television.

Are you looking forward to another visit to Wonderland or is Alice played out at this point?
