Zenescope’s Wonderland series gets TV deal!!

This is really cool! I’m a big fan of Zenescope comics and their twisted take on classic fairy tales. The Wonderland series was the first one I fell in love with. My love of fantasy and folklore drew me to Zenescoope’s Grimm Fairy Tales series which I continue to enjoy. So imagine my surprise when I found out that Wonderland is being adapted for television. The announcement came at Comic-Con International where it was revealed that the adaption is being developed by Lionsgate TV and former Smallville producer Brian Robbins will be spearheading the project. The series will be based on Zenescope’s Wonderland trilogy which continues Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” with “Return to Wonderland”, “Beyond Wonderland”, and “Escape from Wonderland”. The series was created by Raven Gregory as part of Zenescope’s Grimm Fairy Tale series created by founders Joe Brusha and Ralph Tedesco.

While there are many fairy tale and folklore based shows on television including “Once Upon a Time”, “Grimm”, “Supernatural”, and “Vampire Diaries”, and many more coming next season, this will the first one for Lionsgate TV, the outfit behind “Weeds”, “Mad Men”, and charlie Sheen’s “Anger Management”.

“Once Upon a Time”, “Grimm”, and “Supernatural are favs of mine that I have really enjoyed so I am looking forward to see how this will turn out.

  1. This is going to go the same way that The Piper did when it was purchased for TV development last year: Nowhere. Zenescope’s comics have no resemblance to TV format; They’re totally plotless collectively, and the vignettes that make up the story come across as a disconnected attempt to push cosplay porn into a graphic novel format.

    There’s a reason that no network has picked up a Zenescope property: They’re universally terrible.

  2. That would suck for me since I don’t have Showtime. Anyway, regular tv has no problem with boobs but the explicit violence. Well there is Supernatural that always pushes the envelope. So running the series on the WB network would not be a bad idea.
