Lionsgate TV grabs Escape from Wonderland

THR reports that Lionsgate TV has emerged the winner in a six-studio bidding war for TV rights to Zenescope's Wonderland graphic novels. The title, which ranks among the top 10 independent comics released in the past five years, is a modern retelling of Lewis Carroll's 1865 novel Alice in Wonderland told from the point of view of Alice's daughter. It's based on the series of graphic novels — Return to Wonderland, Escape From Wonderland and Beyond Wonderland — created and written by Zenescope co-founders Joe Brusha and Ralph Tedesco and Raven Gregory. Brian Robbins (Smallville), through his first-look deal with Lionsgate TV, will serve as an executive producer on the project alongside Artist International's Dave Brown and Zadoc Angell, who packaged and negotiated the pact along with Zenescope attorney Mark Temple on behalf of Zenescope Entertainment. Tedesco and Brusha will serve as co-executive producers.
