Wizard of Oz… As A Medical Drama Series?

They put Sherlock Holmes into a modern American setting and made it work, now “Elementary” executive producers Carl Beverly and Sarah Timberman are trying that trick for L. Frank Baum’s “Oz” novels.

The pair and CBS have begun development of “Dorothy,” a project described as “a medical soap based in New York City inspired by the characters and themes from The Wizard of Oz.”

Emily Fox (“Ghost Whisperer”) will write the script and will executive produce alongside Beverly and Timberman.
