NBC Not Moving Forward with WIZARD OF OZ Series
NBC is cancelling its trip to Oz.
According to Deadline, the network has chosen not to move forward with its WIZARD OF OZ-themed series EMERALD CITY, despite a straight to series order.
A reimagining of the Frank L. Baum classic and based on the 14-book series that first created the wonderful - and treacherous - Land of Oz, "Emerald City" is a dramatic and modern reimagining of the tales that include lethal warriors, competing kingdoms, and the infamous wizard as we've never seen him before. A head-strong 20-year-old Dorothy Gale is unwittingly sent on an eye-opening journey that thrusts her into the center of an epic and bloody battle for the control of Oz.
'EMERALD' came from writers Matt Arnold and Josh Friedman, who were also to have served as executive producers.
