Comic-Con Scoop: Lionsgate to Develop Alice in Wonderland Themed Drama

by at . Comments

The first of many Comic-Con scoops has been revealed, courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter:

Lionsgate TV is teaming with former Smallville producer Brian Robbins to create a drama based on the Wonderland graphic novels, which are a take-off on Alice in Wonderland, as told through the viewpoint of that title character's daughter.

They were created and written by Zenescope co-founders Joe Brusha and Ralph Tedesco and Raven Gregory and are titled Return to Wonderland, Escape From Wonderland and Beyond Wonderland.

Wonderland Graphic Novel

"As soon as I read the graphic novels, I knew there was something great there for TV," Lionsgate TV Group president Kevin Beggs tells The Hollywood Reporter. "Brian Robbins was my first call, and he saw the same potential I did. Brian's expertise, coupled with Ralph and Joe's exceptional reimagining of the Alice in Wonderland story, is a powerful combination." 

A search is underway to find writers for the eventual show, while reports already indicate that the goal is to find a big-name actress for Alice and a newcomer for her daughter.
