Full Synopsis

Everything you know about Alice’s adventures in Wonderland and through the looking glass is about to be turned upside down in a modern day miniseries event.

Abandoned by her father as a child, the independent twenty-one-year-old Alice is accustomed to men being unpredictable, but Jack Chase is something else. Just moments after surprising her with a rare family ring, he’s suddenly kidnapped by two thugs and driven into darkness. It is then that Alice is confronted by a sharply dressed stranger who calls himself White Rabbit, and who promises to know more about Jack than she. Where Alice follows him is through the liquid glass of an ornate mirror. Where she lands is Wonderland, an outlandish underground city of twisted towers and parapets, staircases conceived in a Dali dream, and an otherworldly purple horizon. This is also where above-grounders are harvested for evanescent emotions like ecstasy, lust, and satisfaction. The only essence that’s out-of-fashion is hope. It’s so last year.

Soon, the word’s out that Wonderland has its most prized captive. It seems Alice has the ring that controls the looking glass—the key to the power of the Queen of Hearts. It was mad folly for her son Jack to give it to a girl he barely knew. But Jack had his reasons. Discovering them is up to Alice, as she fights to keep her head while pursued by Mad March, the Queen’s favourite assassin, a complex mechanical hybrid programmed with tracking expertise and homicidal mania. But there’s another surprise in store for Alice in this mad, mod world of flying scarabs, the thundering Jabberwock, the Pool of Tears and the clinically insane Doctors Dee and Dum—the fate of her missing father, brain-drained and employed by the enemy. Now, the only way Alice can survive Wonderland’s wicked ways, is to harness that which is of no use to a world seduced by instant gratification—hope.

From the creators of the Emmy winning hit Tin Man comes a new miniseries to dazzle the eye and stir the senses senseless. With all the bizarre ingenuity and twisted logic of the Lewis Carroll classic, Alice unfolds as a daringly different, boldly colourful and delightfully skewed dreamscape of its own.
