NBC’s nixed Wizard of Oz TV-inspired series is making a comeback after the network decided to give Emerald City another shot.
NBC previously greenlit, then un-greenlit (red-lit?) the series and now the network has decided to give it another show, giving a 10-episode series order to the project. This time, however, a new name is attached as the show’s writer/ executive producer, David Schulner.
The description of the series, according to The Hollywood Reporter, is as follows:
In the blink of a tornado’s eye, 20-year-old Dorothy Gale and her K9 police dog are transported to another world, one far removed from our own — a mystical land of competing kingdoms, lethal warriors, dark magic and a bloody battle for supremacy. This is the fabled Land of Oz in a way you’ve never seen before, where wicked witches don’t stay dead for long and a young girl becomes a headstrong warrior who holds the fate of kingdoms in her hands.
The network originally greenlit the series in January 2014, so we’ll see if it actually makes it to the small screen this time.
Either way, what are your thoughts on the adaptation? Would you check it out or should they re-red light this one?
