It looks like NBC are taking notes from Elton John and saying goodbye to the ‘Yellow Brick Road’.
The television network has basically called time on its plans to develop a television spinoff to ‘The Wizard Of OZ,’ which has been called ‘Emerald City.’
Emerald City was to be a modern re-imagining of the classic Wizard of Oz universe, blending elements from author L. Frank Baum’s 14-novel collection. (Think Game of Thrones, but with flying monkeys).
The show was to feature a colorful cast of characters, including Dorothy, her love interest Henry, the witches — named North and West — and, of course, the Wizard of Oz.
It’s still possible Universal Television could shop the series to another network, but no such plans have been made.
