A Modern-Day THE WIZARD OF OZ Coming to NBC

The Wizard of Oz

NBC is developing a modern-day take on THE WIZARD OF OZ. The best part is that Jason Katims will be the executive producer for the new drama. That’s right, the same Jason Katims who is also the executive producer of NBC’s Friday Night Lights.

The story will follow Dorothy, a girl from Kansas who finds herself a job in the art world in Manhattan (the modern-day Emerald City) where she must deal with a wicked boss.

This could actually be very good, I just hope they keep some of the magical elements of the original story.
