When Alice Met Syfy


Syfy brings a 21st century twist to Lewis Carroll?s classic Alice?s Adventures In Wonderland in the new two part mini-series ALICE.

Written and directed by Nick Willing (Tin Man) and with an all-star cast including Kathy Bates (Revolutionary Road), Tim Curry (Stephen King’s IT), Andrew Lee Potts (Primeval), Matt Frewer (A Town Called Eureka) and Caterina Scorsone (Crash), this groundbreaking modern re-imagining is a must-watch when it premieres in the UK on Thursday 27 January at 8pm, with the second part on Thursday 3 February.

The story follows Alice Hamilton (Scorsone)whose world is suddenly turned upside down when she finds herself on the other side of a looking glass in Wonderland, an outlandish city ruled by the devilish Queen of Hearts (Bates).

To maintain control of the land the queen uses the emotions of kidnapped humans to feed her citizens. Her strong army of evil Suits – led by the White Rabbit (Alan Gray)- has been kidnapping humans for years and holds them captive in a casino where their memories are erased and their extreme emotions are drained, bottled and consumed by the people of Wonderland.

When Alice?s love Jack Chase (Philip Winchester) is kidnapped and brought to Wonderland she embarks on a thrilling journey through the bizarre world to find him and unravel the strange going?s on. Along the way she enlists the help of some familiar characters – including Hatter (Lee Potts), White Knight (Frewer), Dodo(Curry), Doctors Dee and Dum (Eugene Lipinski) and Caterpillar (Harry Dean Stanton).
