Syfy’s ALICE First Pictures

Matt Frewer as The White Knight, Caterina Scorsone as Alice Hamilton, Andrew Lee Potts as The Hatter in Alice

Take a first look at some pictures from Syfy’s ALICE, a re-imagining of Lewis Carroll books “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” and “Through the Looking-Glass.”

Alice is the modern-day story of Alice Hamilton (Caterina Scorsone), a fiercely independent twenty-something who suddenly finds herself on the other side of a looking glass. She is a stranger in an outlandish city of twisted towers and casinos built out of playing cards, all under the rule of the deliciously devilish Queen of Hearts (Oscar winner Kathy Bates) who’s not very happy about Alice’s arrival.

The amazing cast includes Caterina Scorsone as Alice; Kathy Bates as the Queen of Hearts; Philip Winchester (‘Crusoe’) as Jack Chase, Alice’s new love; Allan Gray as White Rabbit; Colm Meaney (Layer Cake, The Damned United) as the King of Hearts; Andrew Lee Potts (‘Primeval’) as Hatter, Tim Curry (Clue) as Dodo; Matt Frewer (‘Eureka’) as the White Knight; Harry Dean Stanton (The Straight Story, Alpha Dog) as Caterpillar; Alessandro Juliani (‘Battlestar Galactica’) as 9 of Clubs; Timothy Webber (‘Men in Trees’) as Carpenter; Alex Diakun as Ratcatcher; and Eugene Lipinski as Doctors Dee and Dum.

After Syfy’s really great Tin Man, which was a modern take on “The Wizard of Oz,” I am really looking forward to Alice. The great cast alone is something to be excited about. And so far the pictures look really great.

Alice will premiere in December 2009 on Syfy.

Check out a few additional pictures from Alice below.

    Sorry, but comparing with Tim Burton’s new version of the popular books for Disney, this looks for me a little bit boring in my opinion.
    (Compare the Look of Kathy Bates Queen of Hearts with that from Helena Bonham Carter’s Red Queen; and look at the Hatter of course…)
    I’m not very happy with the pictures, it looks exactly, really exactly like “Tin Man”. I hope that the script from Nick Willing, the story will be not like that one from “Tin Man”…
    AND: Nick Willing did also the 1999 NBC tv version of “Alice” with Tina Majorino. It was a very good, truthful version, but this seems to me a little bit to far from the classic original tale, and too modern.
    But that’s only my opinion.
    I’m very exciting and I will definitely watch this new tv miniseries. :DDD
    Maybe I will like it.
    I like how the White Knight looks.
