Emerald City

Most shows have to air and get cancelled before they can get resurrected. 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.

The Wiz

Ratings for last year’s Peter Pan Live! were disappointing enough that NBC felt the need to publicly blame stars Allison Williams and Christopher Walken. Nevertheless, the network is pressing onward with its now annual tradition of staging live televised musicals, with The Wiz as their next target.

Naturally, The Wiz live show will involve some high-profile stunt-casting. But at least this one feels genuinely intriguing: Cirque du Soleil is teaming with NBC for The Wiz live show, setting up Broadway run. Get all the details on The Wiz live show after the jump.  Read More »

Hannibal Season 2

It’s probably a bad idea to accept a taste of anything Hannibal the brilliant psychiatrist/cannibal has to offer, but it’s an excellent idea to get a taste of Hannibal the acclaimed NBC drama. Especially when the taste is as delectable as this one is.

The very first trailer shows Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) looking for his old friend Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen), in what appears to be Florence, Italy. It seems he’s got a pretty important message to deliver. Newly minted series regular Gillian Anderson also swings by. Watch the Hannibal Season 3 trailer after the jump.  Read More »
