NBC has released two sneak peek videos of Emerald City, its radical new take of The Wizard Of Oz that’s so in thrall of Game Of Thrones we’re surprised Cersei Lannister isn’t guest starring as the Wicked Witch of the West. 5Star has bought the series for broadcast in the UK but there’s no news about when it might be premiering in the UK yet. In the States it starts on 6 January, “after Grimm” as it says on the trailer. Are they actively trying to put people off watching it?
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 outrageous wigs.
