[TV] NBC Greenlights New Series Emerald City and New Miniseries The Slap
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 01.19.2014



NBC announced via an official press release that they have given a 10-episode straight-to-series order for the show Emerald City, a new re-imagining of the classic books by Frank L. Baum.

Emeralid City is based on the 14-book series following the Land of Oz. The show will be a modern re-imagining of the stories. The story will include "lethal warriors, competing kingdoms, and the infamous wizard as we've never seen him before." The show will feature a 20-year-old Dorothy Gale who is thrust into a journey that puts her in the center of an epic battle for the control of Oz.

Matt Arnold and Josh Friedman are executive producing the show. Universal TV is producing the series.

NBC has also ordered the eight-episode miniseries The Slap. The miniseries is based on the acclaimed Australian project of the same name, originally broadcast in 2011.

The show was written by Jon Robin Baitz (The West Wing, Brothers & Sisters) and is also produced by Universal TV. The show is a complex family drama that goes off from an incident where a man slaps another couple's child for misbehaving. The minor domestic dispute pulls the family apart, exposes secrets, and ignites a lawsuit that challenges the values of all who are pulled in.

Baitz will write lal the episodes for the show and executive produce the project with Walter Parkes, Laurie MacDonald, Ted Gold, and Tony Ayres.
