Emerald City Comes Calling In First Promo For NBC’s Fantasy Series

Nipping at the heels of last week’s trailer reveal, NBC has now debuted the very first promo for Emerald City, one which reimagines a classic in rather spectacular fashion.

It’s a classic yarn that can be traced all the way back to L. Frank Baum’s original novel series, which began life with The Wonderful Wizard of Oz in 1900. Back then, Baum’s spellbinding work remained the best-selling children’s book for two years straight, and through time various directors and storytellers have tapped into that legacy, resulting in the likes of Sam Raimi’s lavish prequel Oz the Great and Powerful and 1939’s The Wizard of Oz, arguably the most well-known adaptation of the lot.

Now, it’s almost time for Emerald City to join that bracket. Hailing from showrunner David Schulner (Do No Harm), there was a time early on in development where it looked certain

‘Emerald City’ Trailer: NBC’s Dark and Gritty ‘Wizard of Oz’ Series Looks Insane
L. Frank Baum’s children’s book “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” has inspired countless film and theatrical adaptations, including Victor Fleming’s iconic 1939 film starring Judy Garland. Now, a dark, gritty TV series based on the world of Oz will finally the small screens early next year. The series “Emerald City” follows an older version of Dorothy Gale, played by Adria Arjona (“True Detective”), who’s transported by tornado with a K9 police dog into Oz, a land of competing realms, magic and bloodshed. The series co-stars Vincent D’Onofrio (“Full Metal Jacket”) as The Wizard, Oliver Jackson-Cohen (“Dracula”), Ana Ularu (“Outbound”), Joely Richardson (“Nip/Tuck”) and more.

First Trailer For NBC’s Emerald City Says There’s No Place Like Oz

From lavish prequel Oz the Great and Powerful to the beloved Wizard of Oz of 1939, L. Frank Baum’s fantasy classic has inspired a great many adaptations, but none quite like NBC’s Emerald City.

Fraught with development woes at the outset, for the longest time it looked certain that the network had pulled the plug on its dark reimagining for good, only to pull a U-turn a few months later with a straight-to-series order. David Schulner (Do No Harm, The Playboy Club) was brought in to write and executive produce the ten-episode season which, as you can glean from today’s shimmering reveal trailer, takes more than a few cues from HBO’s Game of Thrones.

With a cast toplined by Adria Arjona (Person of Interest) as Dorothy Gale, Vincent D’Onofrio as the Wizard and Oliver Jackson-Cohen as the spineless Scarecrow, Emerald City certainly isn’t lacking in potential,

‘Emerald City’: Watch the Dark New Trailer for ‘Wizard of Oz’ Spinoff

‘Emerald City’: Watch the Dark New Trailer for ‘Wizard of Oz’ Spinoff
Dorothy certainly isn’t in Kansas anymore, and neither is she in a recognizable version of Oz.

In a new trailer for NBC’s “Wizard of Oz” re-imagining “Emerald City,” Dorothy is transported to a land which seems strangely akin to Westeros, with blue-faced tribal people replacing the traditional diminutive munchkins.

The trailer shows a much darker, more action-packed version of the tale, as dark magic mixes with kingdoms locked in a bloody battle for supremacy. Sound familiar?

Also gone is the adorable terrier Toto from the original 1939 movie, and in his place is a bulky K9 police dog who looks like he could do more damage than snapping at someone’s heels.

True Detective” actress Adria Arjona brings a more street wise, warrior-like update to Dorothy, and the trailer also appears to reveal that Dorothy discovers the new version of the Scarecrow, in this case a crucified man covered in hay played by Oliver Jackson-Cohen, along

From comic-book adaptations to sci-fi, fantasy and horror. Here are the new geek-skewed shows coming to Us TV in 2016...

The world of TV has never been so crowded and, at the same time, geeks have never had it so good. As saturated as the big screen is with superhero films and sprawling shared universes, that mentality has well and truly bled onto the small screen too.

Tarsem to make the jump to television with NBC’s ‘Emerald City’

Single director seasons has been a rising trend in television, with last season providing the two most notable examples in HBO’s True Detective and Cinemax’s The Knick, with David Fincher and David Lynch poised to do the same with Utopia and Twin Peaks respectively in subsequent seasons. To date, however, the trend has been limited to cable channels. NBC, however, is jumping into the ring as well, as reports have now emerged that the network channel has tapped director Tarsem Singh to direct all ten episodes of its upcoming series Emerald City.

Tarsem, whose latest feature Self/Less is currently in theatres, is known to most film fans for his work on the 2006 feature The Fall. He currently has five features under his belt, along with an assortment of music videos, including that of Rem’s Losing My Religion, but has yet to work in television.

Wizard Of Oz-Inspired Drama Emerald City Lands Full Series Order

After a two-year stint in development limbo and a cancellation eight months ago, NBC has retrieved its Wizard Of Oz-inspired TV series from the trash. The series, titled Emerald City after the sparkly green-tinged metropolis known as Oz, has undergone a resurrection by network brass who have decided it holds some value after all. Along with its ten-episode straight-to-series order, David Schulner (Do No Harm, The Playboy Club) is now attached to write and executive produce.

Universal Television, who is developing and producing the series, has struggled to lift the show off the ground for years in its various permutations. Matthew Arnold (Siberia) concocted the idea and scripted the pilot which received additional punch-ups by Josh Friedman (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles). While that iteration failed to launch, the current television climate could be the reason by NBC’s change of heart.
