The 10th Kingdom (2000)

This is an imperfect-but-creditable miniseries. Prince Wendell (Daniel Lapaine) is on his way to a prison to inform the Evil Queen (Dianne Wiest) that her request for parole has been denied. With the help of the Troll King, she escapes and turns the prince into a dog. The dog jumps through a magical mirror and lands in New York City. Virginia Lewis (Kimberly Williams-Paisley), a 21-year-old Central Park waitress, is riding her bicycle to work when she hits the dog. Her father joins her and they travel into the fairy tale lands on a quest to restore the prince to his throne.

The miniseries was initially broadcast over five nights on NBC, beginning February 27, 2000. It won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Main Title Design.
