The CW Picks Another Supernatural Heroine For Modern-Day ‘Alice In Wonderland’

Say what you want about The CW’s programming, they’re nothing if not consistent.  Just one day after announcing that the network had begun looking to develop “the next ‘Buffy’” in their script order of femme-skewing angel drama ‘Embrace,’ The CW is at it again looking to create a modern day ‘Alice in Wonderland’ with a kick-ass female hero.  But can ‘Wunderland’ make its very important date, or is it tumbling down the wrong rabbit hole?

The name of the game for The CW is to develop the next great supernatural heroine, and they might have reached a whole new territory in ‘Alice in Wonderland’ adaptation ‘Wunderland.’  With an official script order in place, ‘Wunderland’ reimagines the classic Lewis Carroll character as a modern-day Los Angeles detective who discovers “another world that exists under the surface of this ultra-modern city.”

Deadline was the first to confirm the news, elaborating that ‘The Playboy Club’s Chad Hodge will write and executive produce, with McG and Peter Johnson also attached as executive producers. We’re not kidding either, when we tell you that McG’s Wonderland Sound and Vision is behind the project, in association with Warner Bros. Television.

‘Wunderland’ certainly fits The CW’s heavy plate of girl-friendly genre outings, including the recent development announcements of monster school drama ‘Copeland Prep,’ Wonder Woman adaptation ‘Amazon,’ and even a ‘Sleepy Hollow’ update.

Well, what say you?  DO you think ‘Alice and Wonderland’ could emerge from the rabbit hole as ‘Wunderland’ and still prove watchable?  Who do you think The CW’s next female heroine should be?
