As a kid growing up, I remember watching The Wonderful World of Disney on Sunday nights. So I think it appropriate that ABC (the Disney subsidiary broadcast network) would greenlight a show for the new fall season like Once Upon A Time. Here’s a snippet of how the network describes the show:
“Anna Swan (Jennifer Morrison) knows how to take care of herself. She’s a 28-year old bail bonds collector who’s been on her own ever since she was abandoned as a baby. But when the son she gave up years ago finds her, everything will change. Henry (Jared Gilmore) is 10 years old now and in desperate need of Anna’s help. Henry believes that Anna actually comes from an alternate world… and is Prince Charming (Josh Dallas) and Snow White’s (Ginnifer Goodwin) missing daughter.”
Watching the following clip, I was enthused by a few aspects. That the premise is set mainly in the modern day–and that the show features Morrison (most recently of CBS’s How I Met Your Mother) and Goodwin (formerly of HBO’s Big Love). One more draw, the involvement of veteran actor, Robert Carlyle, who I have respected for years–ever since seeing him in Danny Boyle’s 1996 film, Trainspotting.
I look forward to see more previews of this show (if nothing else, to get a better understanding of the parallel storylines)–and am enthused to see that ABC is already marketing the new series via Facebook and Twitter.
