Read the original report here.
The description of RED BRICK ROAD reads: "In the classic 1939 feature, when Dorothy set off for the Emerald City, she followed the Yellow Brick Road. But among the yellow bricks at Dorothy's feet, there was also a swirl of red bricks. They've been there the whole time in plain sight. Unnoticed. Unexplored. Begging the question - just where do they go? Red Brick Road will answer that by following Dorothy Down that fateful path, taking her to the oldest, darkest and most dangerous parts of Oz to find what became of her friends who all have gone missing."
The drama will be executive produced by Roy Lee and Adrian Askarieh for Waper Organization, Vertigo Entertainment and Warner Horizon.
RED BRICK ROAD joins a network slate already jam-packed with Wizard of Oz-inspired projects, including NBC's Emerald City, CBS' DOROTHY, The CW's DOROTHY MUST DIE and Syfy's WARRIORS OF OZ miniseries.
The Wizard of Oz original 1939 film will celebrate its 75th anniversary in 2014.
