Description: 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. NBC.com

Status: (Updated 3/6/17) This show improved some for its season finale, but that is likely too little too late. Emerald City is likely expensive to produce and has already been pegged with the dreaded “event series” label, so it could end up as another Peak TV one-season-and-done casualty unless NBC has brought in some international partners to help with the funding.  If fans want this show to survive to a second season, then a Call to Action is needed now.
