NBC’s adaptation of “The Wizard of Oz” classic “Emerald City” is going to debut on Jan. 6, 2017. The drama series will have a two-hour premiere at 9:00 p.m. and will consequently air an episode each for its next episodes.
The series was supposed to be in contention for last season, but its development was delayed. Finally, the network has set it on its schedule for the mid-season. Below is the complete press release on “Emerald City.”
Swept up into the eye of a tornado, 20-year-old Dorothy Gale (Adria Arjona) is transported to another world – a mystical land where an all-powerful ruler (Vincent D’Onofrio) governs over one kingdom, has outlawed magic, and faces not only the wrath of a growing cauldron of witches but a looming disaster brought on by a mythical force. Epic, romantic and fantastical, “Emerald City” is an empowering tale of a young woman finding her true strength and identity even as she battles to bring a divided world together.
Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Ana Ularu, Mido Hamada, Jordan Loughran, Gerran Howell and Joely Richardson also star. David Schulner, Shaun Cassidy, Josh Friedman and Matthew Arnold serve as executive producers. The series is directed by Tarsem Singh Dhandwar, who also serves as an executive producer. “Emerald City” is a Universal Television production.
