The series sees Alice (of Alice in Wonderland) fame, coming to doubt her previous adventures down the rabbit hole. Now living in a a mental institution, and nursing a broken heart, Alice contemplates a painful procedure which will put an end to her memories of Wonderland and its inhabitants. However a tiemly intervention by the White Rabbit (voiced by John Lithgow) and the Knave of Hearts (Michael Socha) restores her hope that the love of her life (believed to have been killed by the Queen) still lives.

Check out the following sneak peek (played as a flashback in the series premiere) which shows a tender moment  betweenAlice and her true love – a genie named Cyrus – before they were cruelly parted by the Queen of Hearts.
