AceShowbiz - A few days away from the premiere of "Once Upon a Time", the first nine minutes of the first episode have been made available for viewing pleasure. It begins with the fairytale where Prince Charming (%cJoshua Dallas%) saves Snow White (%cGinnifer Goodwin%) with a kiss. What was supposed to be a happy ending, however, is ruined when the Evil Queen (%cLana Parrilla%) interrupts the couple's wedding.
The story then jumps to the present when bail bonds collector Emma (%cJennifer Morrison%) dates a guy only to capture him. Returning home to celebrate her birthday alone, Emma gets a surprise when a boy named Henry (%cJared Gilmore%) shows up on her doorway and says that he is her son.
Coming from "Lost" writers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, "Once Upon a Time" is a fantasy family drama where fairytale characters are trapped in a modern world. According to Henry's book of fairytales, Emma is sent away to protect her from the Evil Queen's curse.
Emma initially doesn't believe a word, but when she brings Henry back to Storybrooke, she finds herself drawn to this unusual boy and his strange New England town. She later suspects that Storybrooke is a place where magic has been forgotten.
"Once Upon a Time" will first air on ABC this Sunday, October 23 at 8/7c.
