Not only are we not in Kansas any more, we’re not sure we’re even in Oz. Westeros, maybe? NBC has released a new trailer for its major new series, Emerald City, a new take on The Wizard Of Oz. And it’s clear that this is an Oz created in a post-Game Of Thrones era. Although it presumably won’t be quite as bloody, sweary and bare-breastedy (NBC is a major network after all) you can see the influences in the design, the cinematography, the contrast of snowy and sunny landscapes, the shots of men in armour on horses and the very earthy feel to the fantasy aspects. It looks… interesting. And very expensive.

Starring Adria Arjona, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Ana Ularu, Mido Hamada, Jordan Loughran, Gerran Howell, Joely Richardson and Vincent D’Onofrio (Daredevil, Jurassic World) as the Wizard, Emerald City is directed by Tarsem Singh (The Cell, Immortals, Mirror Mirror) so expect lots of silly hats and wigs.
