NBC Cancels Direct-to-Series Order of Emerald City

Posted by monique On August - 28 - 2014 0 Comment

Did you know NBC was planning on taking viewers back to the land of Oz? Well, don’t get too excited yet; unfortunately, NBC decided to renege on the adventure.

The Hollywood Reporter is stating that NBC has already pulled the plug on their new take on the classic story, “The Wizard of Oz,” called “Emerald City,” even though NBC had already placed a direct-to-series order.

The series was slated for a 10-episode pickup with Josh Friedman, the executive producer of “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles” writing the script with Matt Arnold, the creator and writer of “Siberia.” The show was a modern and much more dramatic take on the story, featuring 20-year-old Dorothy Gale in the middle of an epic battle. But NBC decided not to go forward with the show after the producers and network were at odds over the show’s vision.

However, “Emerald City” isn’t completely dead; the show will probably be shopped aroudn by the show’s producer, Universal Television. Perhaps we’ll see “Emerald City” in the future.

Were you one of the people prepared for “Emerald City” to take you back to the mystical land of Oz? Are you upset that the show has been scrapped for now? Give your opinions in the comments section below.
