Once Upon A Time is one of ABC’s most successfully launched new shows in several years. It only makes sense the alphabet network orders a spinoff from the show’s creators. If the network execs like the pilot, OUAT will be the third show in the past few weeks to spawn a spinoff. The WB’s The Vampire Diaries and ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars also have ones in development.
Once creators Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, with help from former River EP Zack Estrin and Once writer Jane Espenson are making a small test presentation. The proposed spinoff will be set in pre-curse Wonderland. Titled, Once: Wonderland, the show will follow Alice’s adventures. Unlike a traditional spinoff, this project will be more in the vein of American Horror Story. It won’t be an “another five-year, 22-episode series”, but rather have “a beginning, middle, and end.” Check out a few of the cast members below.
Taking the role of Alice is English-born Australian actress, Sophie Lowe (left). She’ll be joined by Being Human’s Michael Socha (center). He’ll play the Knave of Hearts. Tapped as Alice’s love interest, Cyrus, is Peter Gadiot (right). If the teaser presentation goes well, production on a pilot will begin filming in Vancouver in July or August.
