First TV Trailer: NBC’s “Emerald City”

Following stops, restarts, retooling and near cancellation, NBC’s Wizard of Oz-inspired epic fantasy series “Emerald City” has finally released its first trailer ahead of its premiere in early January.

Tarsem Singh (“The Fall,” “The Cell,” “Immortals”) directs and executive produces the series with his usual visual styling albeit on a tighter budget.

In this version Dorothy Gale (Adria Arjona) is a cop who, along with her K9 unit, are pulled by a tornado into a mystical land of competing realms, lethal warriors, dark magic and a bloody battle for supremacy.

Vincent D’Onofrio, Isabel Lucas, Joely Richardson and Oliver Jackson-Cohen co-star.
