Are you a good witch, or a bad witch? Well, if you aren’t any sort of witch, you’ll still love the trailer for ‘Emerald City,’ NBC’s new epic series based off the ‘Wizard of Oz.’ Check out the clip of the witches of Oz duking it out, right after the jump.
Everyone’s fave Kansas city gal, Dorothy Gale (Person of Interest’s Adria Arjona) is headed to the small screen in NBC‘s new drama Emerald City. But this isn’t the Dorothy that we all know and love from the classic film The Wizard of the Oz. Oh no, this Dorothy, is still taken away to the land of Oz via a tornado — but this time she’s dealing with a group of witches who rule over the kingdom. Just looking at the new trailer we’re already intrigued!
The series stars Adria, along with actors like Nip/Tuck‘s Joely Richardson as Glinda the “Good.” The show is full of weird versions of the L. Frank Baum characters from the books and original film. For instance, remember the fun and silly scarecrow? Well now he’s a sexy bloody scarecrow that Dorothy comes across in the desert, strung up on a cross. My goodness!
Well, this definitely doesn’t sound like the merry old land of Oz to us. But it does seem like it’s going to be an amazing show. We can’t wait to see the witches battling it out to over who gets to be the overlord of Oz. And, it’s pretty cool that this time it’s witches, and not a wizard, who are in charge. The series premieres on NBC on Jan. 6, and we know we will be tuning in!
