Emerald City is an upcoming American fantasy television series based on the Land of Oz book series written by L. Frank Baum. A 10-episode first season has been ordered straight to series by NBC on April 15, 2015.[2]

Development and production

The series was created by Matthew Arnold who pitched a dark, edgy version of The Wizard of Oz to Universal Television. Arnold wrote the pilot script, which then received a 10 episode direct-to-series order on NBC. Josh Friedman was brought on as showrunner.[3]

The series was originally slated to air in 2015, with filming scheduled to begin in 2014.[4] However, the series was canceled before entering production due to creative differences between Friedman and the studio.[5]

On April 15, 2015, NBC reversed course and decided to go ahead with the series after all.[6]

On July 14, 2015, it was announced that Tarsem Singh would direct all 10 episodes of season 1,[7] with David Schulner as new showrunner, replacing Josh Friedman.[8]
