First Trailer For Emerald City

From lavish prequel Oz the Great and Powerful to the beloved Wizard of Oz of 1939, L. Frank Baum’s fantasy classic has inspired a great many adaptations, but none quite like NBC’s Emerald City.

Fraught with development woes at the outset, for the longest time it looked certain that the network had pulled the plug on its dark reimagining for good, only to pull a U-turn a few months later with a straight-to-series order. David Schulner was brought in to write and executive produce the ten-episode season which, as you can glean from today’s shimmering reveal trailer, takes more than a few cues from HBO’s Game of Thrones.

With a cast toplined by Adria Arjona as Dorothy Gale, Vincent D’Onofrio as the Wizard and Oliver Jackson-Cohen as the spineless Scarecrow, Emerald City certainly isn’t lacking in potential, but over the years we’ve witnessed many “modern and dark reimaginings” fall prey to lacklustre ratings.
Emerald City will whisk viewers off to the fantastical realm of Oz on Friday, January 6.
