Vincent D’Onofrio has been set to play The Wizard of Oz in NBC’s upcoming ten-episode, straight-to-series drama “Emerald City”. The project marks a reunion of sorts with his “The Cell” director Tarsem Singh.
Adria Arjona plays a twenty-year-old Dorothy Gale who, along with her K9 police dog, are transported to the mystical land of Oz, a place of competing kingdoms, lethal warriors, dark magic and a bloody battle for supremacy.
D’Onofrio’s Wizard is the enigmatic leader of Emerald City, a man of science in a world of magic, he rules through inspiration, fear and a tenuous accord with the grand witches. In the series, Dorothy must become a headstrong warrior who holds the land’s fate in her hands.
David Schulner and Shaun Cassidy are executive producing the project which also stars Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Ana Ularu, Gerran Howell, Jordan Loughran and Mido Hamada.
