Emerald City trailer

If you’ve ever watched The Wizard of Oz and wished it played more like a low-rent version of Game of Thrones — or, conversely, if you’ve ever watched Game of Thrones and thought it could use some Wizard of Oz insanity — then Emerald City might be for you. The new NBC series from Tarsem Singh reimagines L. Frank Baum’s classic adventure as a grown-up fantasy drama. A young cop named Dorthy Game is whisked off to a far-off realm where she must contend with witches, warriors, sky portals, and Vincent D’Onofrio.

But Emerald City is special — it has died and come back to life before broadcasting a single episode. NBC has given the Wizard of Oz-based drama a 10-episode straight-to-series order, after scrapping an earlier 10-episode straight-to-series order last year.
