The Adventures of Snow White and Rose Red
Television (Family and Fantasy) Writer The Adventures of Snow White and Rose Red is a live action fairy tale show featuring two sisters from humble beginnings who live in a cottage in the woods with their parents. Snow White, a kind girl with a passion for animals and good books, is best friends with her sister, Rose Red, an outgoing girl with a curious spirit. When they're not helping out with the family chores, they spend their days roaming the forest and playing pretend. But it's not long before they learn that the woods they have lived in all their lives are nothing short of magical, and they begin to cross paths with the characters they've only read about in fairy tales, such as Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood and Alice in Wonderland. As they embark on their adventures, the girls learn the importance of sisterhood, friendship, and kindness, and that your life can be far from ordinary, if you just believe in a little magic.
