‘Classic Alice’ Prepares to Tell Its Story
Produced by Kate Hackett Prod and AntiKaiser, webseries will explore a student’s journey to live life according to classic literature.
Hackett explains that, “One of my very earliest passions was reading; I loved falling into books and always wished I could BE there, with the characters, experiencing their worlds. Writing ‘Classic Alice’ lets me play pretend on that level too, so I’m delighted that it’s moving forward and that I get to slip into Alice’s shoes.”
The first season of Classic Alice will be directed by Josh Compton (http://www.imdb.com/
“I fell in love with this series within just a few pages,” said Kaiser. “The way Kate crafted the script to give a sense of action in a dialogue-driven format really intrigued me. I knew I had to be involved and do what I can to help make this project successful.”
In addition to the episode run, Classic Alice will be incorporating transmedia elements into its presentation. Character accounts on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and more will create additional content to supplement what viewers will watch on screen. This will allow the audience to participate and engage with the material in a broader way than traditional media allows and truly let the character of Alice Rackham into their lives.
Production is currently underway on the six-episode first season with a release date slated for Spring 2014. To receive additional updates, sign up for the Classic Alice mailing list at http://classic-
