ABC has a winner on its hands with its fantasy based Once Upon a Time that deals with fairy tale & mythical characters coping with the real world in Storybrooke. As with most TV shows that are successful an attempt will be made to create a spinoff of it. Once: Wonderland is set in the pre-curse world of Wonderland. The story of Once: Wonderland will be from the perspective of Alice (Sophie Lowe), a girl who "has a generous heart but carries the scars of a long hard life". Joining Alice will be characters Cyrus (Peter Gadiot), as a mysterious love interest for Alice with a secretive background, and the Knave of Hearts (Michael Socha), a gallant adventurer and 'ladies man'. Production on the pilot is expected to start on April 7, 2013, immediately following the season ending of Once.
