Horowitz said that he and fellow executive producer Edward Kitsis are huge Who fans, so they're excited that the singer is involved in the new program.  He describes Wonderland as a "psychedelic romance" that's "trippy," "weird" and "intense, but that also has some real characters with humor and romance."

Once upon a Time in Wonderland will premiere on Thursday, October 10, at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT on ABC.
