NBC is gearing up for another hit sci-fi fantasy series with Emerald City, an entirely new take on the cherished classic Wizard Of Oz. which is set to premiere on January 6, 2017.
As you can see Daredevil's Vincent D’Onofrio’s is playing the role of The Wizard of Oz, and is described as “a man of science in a world of magic, the Wizard rules through inspiration, fear and a tenuous accord with the grand witches.
Based on the trailer, it looks like Dorothy has a much bigger and more heroic role to play in this explosive adaptation of L. Frank Baum's original children's tales.
The series almost looks like a mash-up between Once Upon A Time and Game of Thrones, which is definitely a good thing!
In the blink of a tornado's eye, 20-year-old Dorothy Gale and a K9 police dog are swept into a world far removed from our own - a mystical land of competing realms, lethal warriors, dark magic and a bloody battle for supremacy. Starring Vincent D'Onofrio (Daredevil, Jurassic World) as the guileful Wizard and directed by the visionary Tarsem Singh across three European countries, this is Oz completely reimagined - a place where familiar characters show up in fresh, unexpected ways, and where an unsuspecting young woman holds the fate of kingdoms in her hands. And as Dorothy navigates this dangerous world and uncovers her true destiny, we'll see there's no place like... Oz.
Emerald City is set to premiere on January 6, 2017.
