There may be no place like home, but NBC has released photos of its new Emerald City TV series, set to debut in the fall of 2016. The series stars Adria Arjona as Dorothy. Vincent D’Onofrio is the Wizard. Florence Kasumba plays the Wicked Witch of the East. Oliver Jackson-Cohen is Lucus, the Scarecrow.
Entertainment Weekly has an exclusive look at the photos, the first of which features Kasumba in a magnificent red costume, bearing a black feather collar. The second features Jackson-Cohen and Arjona. Check them out.
Swept up into the eye of a tornado, 20-year-old Dorothy Gale (Adria Arjona) is transported to another world – a mystical land in great peril, where an all-powerful wizard has forbidden magic and rules over many kingdoms. This is the fabled Land of Oz in a way you’ve never seen it before, where lethal warriors roam, wicked witches plot in the shadows and a young girl from Kansas becomes a headstrong heroine who holds the fate of their world in her hands.
David Schulner, Shaun Cassidy and Matt Arnold serve as executive producers. “Emerald City” is a production of Universal Television.
