NBC Passes on Oz-Inspired ‘Emerald City’

25 minutes ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Despite initially giving “Emerald City” a straight to series order for next season, NBC has opted not to move forward with the “Oz”-inspired drama.

The project hailed from Matthew Arnold, who penned the series’ original script, and Josh Friedman, who tweaked the pilot for the network. Conceived as a 10-episode series, “Emerald City” was planned as a modern and dark reimagining of the classic L. Frank Baum Oz tales more akin to “Game of Thrones” than the 1939 Judy Garland pic. “Emerald City” would’ve drawn from Baum’s original 14 books and featured more battles, political maneuvers and a very different take on the infamous wizard, as a 20 year-old Dorothy Gale embarked on a journey that thrust her into a vicious battle for control of Oz.

Deadline first reported the news, citing a difference in vision between NBC execs and Friedman about the show’s direction, which lead to the »

28 minutes ago | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is finally in theaters, close to a decade after the release of the first Frank Miller graphic novel adaptation. Back in 2005, co-director Robert Rodriguez’s decision to shoot the film mostly on greenscreens was seen as a wild gambit. Now, it’s practically par for the course that most major Hollywood productions will feature at least a few digital backlots.

Even so, it’s thrillingly weird to see how the Sin City filmmakers transform an empty set into a dark metropolis. That’s why EW is excited to share a few behind-the-scenes photos »
