Green With Envy
♦NBC’s reimagining of The Wizard of Oz, Emerald City, began a number of weeks ago on US TV and so here is a promo for its fifth episode courtesy of Television Promos…
Emerald City 1×05 “Everybody Lies” – Desperately seeking revenge for the death of her sister, West (Ana Ularu) tracks down Dorothy (Adria Arjona) and uses enchanted interrogation techniques to get the information she needs. The Wizard (Vincent D’Onofrio) seeks the aid of the Kingdom of Ev to build a weapons arsenal to help him defeat the Beast Forever. Meanwhile, an old acquaintance may hold to the key to Lucas (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) recovering his lost memories. Mido Hamada, Jordan Laughran and Joely Richardson also star.
A dark, modern reimagining of “The Wizard of Oz.” In the blink of a tornado’s eye, 20-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. And as Dorothy navigates this dangerous world and uncovers her true destiny, we’ll see there’s no place like… Oz.
