* AwesomeDearBoy:
** Camryn Manheim accepted immediately when she was offered the role of Snow White, ecstatic that the miniseries had chosen to portray the princess differently than the familiar ones.
** Kimberly Williams Paisley dislikes working in TV due to the fast-paced nature of it, but accepted the role of Virginia in order to work with Dianne Wiest, Jimmy Nail and Rutger Hauer.



* CultClassic: As noted elsewhere, the miniseries didn't do well with ratings when it aired on TV. Over the years it has achieved a sizeable cult following who eagerly want to see a continuation.



* {{Novelization}}: Seeing as it was based on an earlier version of the screenplay, it suffered from invalidated script syndrome. In some cases, this allowed readers access to nonsensical or [[{{Narm}} Narmful]] moments which were thankfully cut from the final miniseries; in other cases, things were included which would have been intriguing had they made it into the movie (such as the Queen telling the Dog Prince a "bedtime story" about how she came to end up in prison, the literal burying of the magic axe, Virginia's RecurringDreams about Wolf, or an interesting variation on the Swamp Witch's cottage scene with Clay Face rather than Acorn). Other sections have some surprisingly deep explorations of character and motivation, such as the longer conversations between Virginia and the Huntsman, Virginia and the Queen, Virginia and Snow White, or Virginia and Tony about her mother; or where they hear in Little Lamb Village about the Trolls ravaging the kingdom and Tony, who accidentally golded Wendell, feels responsible. And some [[AllThereInTheManual explanations]] for otherwise headscratching moments are included, such as the old woman in the forest and the Cupid girl in Kissing Town both being Snow White in disguise. There's also lots of fun [[DeadpanSnarker snarking]] in the characters' thoughts, especially Wolf's and Tony's.

** Dianne Wiest, usually kindly mother figures plays
the characters' thoughts, especially Wolf's and Tony's.BigBad herself - the wicked queen.
** Camryn Manheim certainly isn't the first one you'd think of to play Snow White, which was invoked by producers.

Added DiffLines:

* BillingDisplacement: At the beginning of The 10th Kingdom, Ann-Margret is listed among actors who appear throughout the entire miniseries, yet she doesn't actually appear until the very end. The same goes for Camryn Manheim as Snow White, who other than a DreamSequence appears only in part four.

* EditedForSyndication: Due to the extreme length of the miniseries, when it was re-broadcast for a second time in August 2000, various scenes were cut. Some versions of the VHS copies also had these scenes missing, and apparently even some of the DVDs. Later versions of the DVD had all scenes restored.
