Judging by the images NBC has released so far, audiences are in for a visual treat with Emerald City. This modern take on the Land of Oz from Director Tarsem Singh (The Fall, Immortals) brings to life the characters and world we know so well, only with a spin on the material that makes it nearly unrecognizable.
Check out NBC’s official description…
Swept up into the eye of a tornado, 20-year-old Dorothy Gale (Adria Arjona) is transported to another world – a mystical land where an all-powerful ruler (Vincent D’Onofrio) governs over one kingdom, has outlawed magic, and faces not only the wrath of a growing cauldron of witches but a looming disaster brought on by a mythical force. Epic, romantic and fantastical, “Emerald City” is an empowering tale of a young woman finding her true strength and identity even as she battles to bring a divided world together.
Emerald City Premieres Friday, January 6 at 9/8c on NBC
