'The Playboy Club' creator Chad Hodge is working on a contemporary take on Lewis Carroll's children tale, while Guillermo del Toro is on board as a director for crime show 'Nutshell Studies'.
"Alice in Wonderland" will be brought to life on small screen. The CW has nabbed a new project titled "Wunderland" from "The Playboy Club" creator Chad Hodge that is aimed to be a contemporary reimagining of the famous tale.
The show will present the titular character as a young, modern-day police detective who discovers another world that exists beneath Los Angeles. Hodge pens the script and executive produces it with Peter Johnson.
At the same time, HBO is prepping a Hitchcockian show, "Nutshell Studies". The project has tapped Guillermo del Toro as a director and novelist Sara Gran as a scribe. The twosome will also serve as executive producers alongside Gary Unger.
The crime drama is adapted from Corinne May Botz's 2004 book "The Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death". The show will revolve around a 1950s small-town housewife who becomes obsessed with solving brutal crimes.
