"Emerald City" (TV show) is a drama series on NBC that is a reimagining of the classic Frank L. Baum books that have inspired everything from "The Wizard of Oz" to "Wicked."

Based on the 14-book series that first created the wonderful — and treacherous — Land of Oz, the series is a dramatic and modern reimagining of the tales that include lethal warriors, competing kingdoms, and the infamous wizard as we've never seen him before.

In the blink of a tornado's eye, twenty-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.

Starring Vincent D'Onofrio ("Daredevil," "Jurassic World") as the guileful Wizard and directed by the visionary Tarsem Singh across three European countries, this is Oz completely reimagined — a place where familiar characters show up in fresh, unexpected ways, and where an unsuspecting young woman holds the fate of kingdoms in her hands. As Dorothy navigates this dangerous world and uncovers her true destiny, we'll see there's no place like… Oz.
The cast includes Vincent D'Onofrio, Adria Arjona, Ana Ularu, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Jordan Loughran, Gerran Howell, Mido Hamada, Joely Richardson, Isabel Lucas, Stefanie Martini, Suan-Li Ong, Florence Kasumba and Roxy Sternberg.
"Emerald City" is produced by Universal Television. David Schulner and Shaun Cassidy are writers and executive producers. Josh Friedman ("Terminator" The Sarah Connor Chronicles"), Matthew Arnold ("Siberia") and director Tarsem Singh also executive produce.
