We've got an exclusive behind-the-scenes video about the making of Syfy's upcoming limited series Alice, featuring interviews with star Kathy Bates and writer/director Nick Willing who talk about their sinister new take on the Queen of Hearts. (Note that she doesn't break character while talking with us: She maintains her English accent!)

Using the classic Lewis Carroll books "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking-Glass" as a jumping-off point, writer/director Nick Willing has created the modern-day story of Alice Hamilton (Caterina Scorsone), a fiercely independent twenty-something who suddenly finds herself on the other side of a looking glass. She is a stranger in an outlandish city of twisted towers and casinos built out of playing cards, all under the rule of the deliciously devilish Queen of Hearts (Oscar winner Kathy Bates) who's not very happy about Alice's arrival.

Alice premieres Sunday at 9 p.m. ET/PT and concludes the following Monday at 9.
