Many Old Friends Fall Through The Looking Glass In New AliceS

Wonder what happened to Gaeta after his failed mutiny on the Galactica? Apparently, he fell through the looking glass and landed with familiar faces from Primeval, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Max Headroom in SyFy's Alice in Wonderland remake.

The new four-hour series, made by the same people behind last year's surprise hit Tin Man, will star DS9's Colm Meaney as the King of Hearts (with Kathy Bates, Misery's Annie Wilkes, as the Queen of Hearts), Tim Curry as the Dodo and io9 favorite Matt Frewer as the White Knight. Primeval's Andrew Lee Potts, meanwhile, will play (the apparently-no-longer-Mad) Hatter, while Alessandro Juliani - AKA BSG's traitorous Gaeta - teams up with SGI: Stargate Universe's Zak Santiago as 9 and 10 of Clubs, respectively.

The mini-series is being described as "a modern day take" on the Lewis Carroll original, with Alice (Caterina Scorsone) updated to a twentysomething who ends up going down the wrong rabbit hole at the wrong time. The series will debut in December.
