Emerald City – NBC’s scripted drama which is a “re-imagining” of The Wizard Of Oz – will receive its UK premiere on 5Star on Wednesday February 8th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Emerald City follows 20-year-old Dorothy Gale who is transported to another world — a mystical land where an all-powerful ruler 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.
The ten episode drama series is produced by NBC’s sister studio Universal Television and stars Adria Arjona, Vincent D’Onofrio, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Ana Ularu, Mido Hamada, Jordan Loughran, Gerran Howell and Joely Richardson. Emerald City was re-developed by director Matt Schulner, after the network passed on the initial attempt by Josh Friedman. Tarsem Singh Dhandwar is the director and also serves as an executive producer alongside David Schulner, Shaun Cassidy, Josh Friedman and Matthew Arnold.
