NBC has a fever. And the only prescription is pilots, baby!
The network is at it again, as it has ordered Wonderland, a sequel of sorts to Lewis Carroll's beloved "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland". The show is being executive produced by Anthony Zuiker, who is best known for his work on CSI.
Wonderland, an hour-long drama, will look at the life of Clara, a woman who has had a rough seven years (damn broken mirrors). Clara meets a stranger who tells her there is an explanation for what she has dealt with, in Wonderland, a fantastic world full of zany characters.
Wonderland has an evil queen that rules over the land - a queen named Alice. Interesting twist, huh?
Two Alice in Wonderland projects were being developed recently, similar to how ABC and NBC put out fairytale dramas recently in Once Upon a Time and Grimm. No word on the other one, yet.
It is the 10th drama ordered this season from NBC, which blows my mind. Pilots are not cheap to produce, you know. Could the Peacock be turning away from comedies? Probably not, as it has 16 of those ordered too!
The other dramas include a modern-day Hatfields & McCoys, Jerry Bruckheimer's The Secret Lives of Husbands and Wives, and J.J. Abrams' Believe.
Will you be traveling with Clara to Wonderland?
