Emerald City | Wizard of Oz Remake

Well now, this looks interesting. I hate that they are messing with one of my most favorite movies, but this might actually be good, especially with its multicultural cast, Dorothy as a police officer and Toto as a German Shepard.

So move over Once Upon a Time, Emerald City is coming to NBC!


In the blink of a tornado’s eye, 20-year-old Dorothy Gale and a K9 police dog are swept into a world far removed from our own – a mystical land of competing realms, lethal warriors, dark magic and a bloody battle for supremacy. Starring Vincent D’Onofrio (Daredevil, Jurassic World) as the guileful Wizard and directed by the visionary Tarsem Singh across three European countries, this is Oz completely reimagined – a place where familiar characters show up in fresh, unexpected ways, and where an unsuspecting young woman holds the fate of kingdoms in her hands. And as Dorothy navigates this dangerous world and uncovers her true destiny, we’ll see there’s no place like… Oz.

In NBC’s first trailer for Emerald City, Dorothy is so far from Kansas that she might have found her way to Westeros. The Wizard of Oz gets a dark and sexy makeover in the latest take on L. Frank Baum’s legendary book series.

Tarsem Singh (Mirror Mirror) directed all 10 episodes of the first season, which premieres Jan. 6 at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.
