The 10th Kingdom is a 10-episode miniseries that originally aired on NBC in the year 2000. The show is a fantasy adventure drama that follows the journey of a father and daughter through a portal to a parallel universe. The show tells the story of Virginia Lewis (Kimberly Williams-Paisley), a young waitress living in New York with her father, Tony (John Larroquette). Virginia is unhappy with her mundane life and frequently argues with her father, who is struggling with financial problems.

One day, while out for a walk with her dog, Virginia accidentally follows her dog through a portal to a parallel universe called the Nine Kingdoms. Virginia and her father are both transported to this strange new world, where they encounter a variety of magical creatures, including trolls, witches, and talking animals.

The Nine Kingdoms are ruled by the evil Queen (Dianne Wiest), who has a particular hatred for Tony due to events that happened in the past. Virginia and Tony must navigate through this dangerous world in order to find a way back home, all while trying to avoid the Queen's henchmen who are searching for them.

Along the way, they meet a number of allies who help them on their quest. One of their most important allies is Wolf (Scott Cohen), a half-man, half-wolf hybrid who becomes Virginia's love interest. Other notable characters include Prince Wendell (Daniel Lapaine), a handsome but arrogant prince who has been turned into a dog, and Snow White (Camryn Manheim), who is now a bar owner and tough-talking businesswoman.

The show takes its title from the fact that there is a tenth kingdom that has been lost for centuries, and which holds the key to stopping the Queen's plans. Virginia and her companions must journey through the other nine kingdoms in search of clues to the tenth kingdom's location.

In addition to the main plot, there are numerous subplots and minor characters who receive their own storylines. Ed O'Neill plays a janitor at the Statue of Liberty who is also transported to the Nine Kingdoms and becomes an unlikely hero. Ann-Margret plays the Evil Queen's stepmother, who is also trying to stop her plans.

The 10th Kingdom is a visually stunning production, with elaborate sets and costumes, and impressive special effects. The show was filmed in England and Germany, and the locations add to the sense of adventure and otherworldliness.

The show received mixed reviews upon its initial airing, but has since gained a cult following. It was praised for its humor, imaginative world-building, and strong performances from its cast. Many fans were disappointed when plans for a sequel fell through due to financial issues.

Overall, The 10th Kingdom is an epic adventure that is sure to please fans of fantasy and fairy tales. With its engaging characters, thrilling plot, and lavish production values, the show is an underappreciated gem that deserves a wider audience.

The 10th Kingdom is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (5 episodes). The series first aired on February 27, 2000.
