Emerald City Featurette

A new TV show featurette has debuted for NBC‘s Emerald City (2017). This ‘First Look (Sneak Peak)’ features brand new footage of the upcoming TV series. The featurette features some of the principal cast talking about their characters in relation to the new take the series is taking with The Wonderful Wizard of Oz storyline. Vincent D’Onofrio believes that Emerald City is a reflection of society today.

This reinvention of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz goes down to the marrow of the characters on-screen and their relationships with one another.

Magic has been banned in Oz in Emerald City. The Wizard controls his dominion through science. Because of the ban, the witches new occupations are pretty interesting.

Immortals and The Cell were great looking, visual films. I am looking forward to what director Tarsem Singh creates during the Emerald City‘s 10-episode first season. It is obvious that NBC has placed a lot of money into the production of this first season.

Emerald City‘s plot synopsis: based on the book by L. Frank Baum, “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.”

Emerald City also stars Stefanie Martini, Ana Ularu, Roxy Sternberg, Rebeka ReaGerran Howell, Adria Arjona, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Isabel Lucas , and Ólafur Darri Ólafsson.
