NBC is planning to go back down the yellow brick road in a Wizard of Oz inspired series. The network cancelled plans for the Emerald City TV show early last year but has now decided to “un-cancel” the project with a new writer at the helm.
Emerald City was picked up straight-to-series in January 2014 with a 10 episode order. Josh Friedman and Matt Arnold were planned to write the script. The project was cancelled because the producers and network couldn’t agree on vision.
