Alice's adventures in TV land
Brace yourself, Lewis Carroll. Your classic tales Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass are being turned into a four-hour, two-part miniseries to be aired on CBS next season. Actress Natalie (Kids Don't Tell) Gregory, 9, will star in a cast heavy with veteran celebs, including Red Buttons (above) as The White Rabbit, Donald O'Connor (below) as The Lory Bird and Telly Savalas (left) as The Cheshire Cat. Alice, who loves ya, baby?
