Keep in mind that Cora as the Queen of Hearts would only appear in flashback episodes, as this spinoff takes place Post-Curse.[adrotate group="5"]May 12, 2013 at 10:42 pm #193425DemiletoParticipant
I hope they keep ONCE’s ever-changing title cards in the spin-off, static ones shows like Vampire Diaries uses are so boring.May 13, 2013 at 9:56 pm #194005shinysephirothParticipant
I thought this show happened pre-curse. Doesn’t the link say everything is occurring during The Land Without Magic’s Victorian era? Forgive me if I’m mistaken.May 13, 2013 at 9:57 pm #194007
And it is supposed to be both pre-curse and post-curse."He was a lot of things to me" "The only conclusion was love"May 14, 2013 at 4:14 pm #194237obisgirlParticipant
OW has a time slot for this fall.
8:00 p.m. “Once Upon a Time in Wonderland”
9:00 p.m. “Grey’s Anatomy”
10:00 p.m. “Scandal”May 14, 2013 at 4:17 pm #194239
“ONCE UPON A TIME IN WONDERLAND”
In Victorian England, the young and beautiful Alice (Sophie Lowe) tells a tale of a strange new land that exists on the other side of a rabbit hole. An invisible cat, a hookah smoking caterpillar and playing-cards that talk are just some of the fantastic things she’s seen during this impossible adventure. Surely this troubled girl must be insane, and her doctors aim to cure her with a treatment that will make her forget everything. Alice seems ready to put it all behind her, especially the painful memory of the genie she fell in love with and lost forever — the handsome and mysterious Cyrus (Peter Gadiot). But deep down Alice knows this world is real, and just in the nick of time the sardonic Knave of Hearts (Michael Socha) and the irrepressible White Rabbit (John Lithgow) arrive to save her from a doomed fate. Together the trio will take a tumble down the rabbit hole to this Wonderland where nothing is impossible.
“Once Upon a Time in Wonderland” stars Sophie Lowe (“Beautiful Kate”) as Alice, Michael Socha (“This Is England”) as Knave of Hearts, Peter Gadiot (“The Forbidden Girl”) as Cyrus, Emma Rigby (“Hollyoaks”) as Queen of Hearts and John Lithgow (“3rd Rock from the Sun”) as The Voice of the White Rabbit.
“Once Upon a Time in Wonderland” was written by Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz (“Once Upon a Time”), who serve as executive producers. Steve Perlman and Zack Estrin also serve as executive producers, and the pilot was directed by Ralph Hemecker. “Once Upon a Time in Wonderland” is produced by ABC Studios.
First little synopsis for the show.
I’m reading in various places that the time slot they were given is not a good one, that it’s the “death” slot. But I would have thought the lead in to Grey’s would be a great place given the cult following of both shows?"He was a lot of things to me" "The only conclusion was love"May 14, 2013 at 5:13 pm #194263

It’s considered a tough slot mainly because Big Bang Theory which airs at 8 on Thursdays is the biggest show on TV, with Two and a Half Men in the half hour after it also performing very very well. However going against BBT likely isn’t as scary as for a comedy. For NBC’s comedies which have been on Thursday night (Community, Parks and Rec, The Office, 30 Rock) whichever got the short stick of facing against Big Bang, was in the “death slot”. American Idol when it airs on Thursdays is also competition, however AI isn’t what it used to be ratings wise and it usually starts in about January, so if OW airs in the fall instead of during the “winter hiatus” it will avoid Idol and the competition on the other channels outside of Big Bang/2.5 Men should be very weak. OW airing before Grey’s does not help it much, shows get the boost when they air after a well performing show on a night, not before it.
Anyways the Once Wonderland trailer that just came out is AMAZING/MIND=BLOWN. However it gave me worries about whether it’ll catch on ratings wise. This looks like a movie/mini-series more than a network TV show.May 14, 2013 at 9:27 pm #194375
I’m still confused though. I thought it was supposed to be a 12 episode miniseries. Has it been picked up for a full 22??"He was a lot of things to me" "The only conclusion was love"
