Emerald City on NBC
Once the car lands, she realizes that she has run over someone (the Wicked Witch of the East). Instead of munchkins, she is greeted by tribesmen. After the tribesman warn Dorothy of the repercussions of running over the witch, she decides to go to Emerald City to pay the Wizard a visit.
On the way, she meets a man (Lucas) who has no memory but is hanging on a cross. She helps him down and they decide that maybe the Wizard will be able to help him recovery his memories. Meanwhile the Wizard (played by Vincent D’Onofrio) orders that Dorothy be found and killed. Along Dorothy and Lucas’ travels, they meet a woman who is holding a boy captive. The woman poisons Lucas but Dorothy saves him by making him drink charcoal. They then stab the lady and free the boy.
Later, its discovered that the lady was suppressing the boy’s true body as once he was free from her, he turned into a girl.
There’s a bunch of spells, lies, murder, and more. This is not the traditional version of The Wizard of Oz. However, once you start watching the show, it’s pretty interesting. The first season has the greenlight for 10 episodes. It appears to be full of promise and intrigue and who knows, the Wizard may turn out to be nice after all.
