The 10th Kingdom
was a television miniseries
airing during the last days of February
and first days of March
, with an all-star cast including John Laroquette
, Scott Cohen
, Kimberly Williams
, Ed O'Neill
, Warwick Davis
, and many others.
The miniseries posits a magical realm of nine kingdoms, ruled by descendants of the houses of Snow White, Cinderella, and other fairy tale characters. It is up to a party made up of a young girl and her father (from New York City, the "tenth kingdom" of the title), a prince trapped in the body of a dog, and a questionably trustworthy half-wolf to rescue this kingdom from catastrophe.
Though adults might be put off by the "fairy tale" nature of the story, this miniseries is aimed more toward adults than children. It does not shy away from killing people, sometimes quite grotesquely. However, it is also one of the most amazingly consistently high quality productions to appear on television within at least the last decade.
The 10th Kingdom is available on EP-speed VHS as one tape, SP-speed VHS as two tapes, or DVD.
