NBC Prepares Emerald City and The Slap

NBC Logo 2013NBC is moving forward on the dramatic series Emerald City, giving the new show based on Frank L. Baum’s books a 10 episode order. Emerald City is described as a ‘reimagining’ of Baum’s books that inspired Wicked on Broadway and the iconic feature film The Wizard of Oz.
Matt Arnold and Josh Friedman are writing the series and will be executive producing.
The Emerald City Plot:

Based on the 14-book series that first created the wonderful – and treacherous – Land of Oz, Emerald City is a dramatic and modern reimagining of the tales that include lethal warriors, competing kingdoms, and the infamous wizard as we’ve never seen him before. A head-strong 20-year-old Dorothy Gale is unwittingly sent on an eye-opening journey that thrusts her into the center of an epic and bloody battle for the control of Oz.

NBC is also working on The Slap, an eight episode miniseries. The Slap is based on the 2011 Australian project and is written by Jon Robin Baitz. Baitz is also executive producing with Walter Parkes, Laurie MacDonald, Ted Gold and Tony Ayres.
The Plot of The Slap:

The Slap is a complex family drama that explodes from one small incident where a man slaps another couple’s misbehaving child. This seemingly minor domestic dispute pulls the family apart, begins to expose long-held secrets, and ignites a lawsuit that challenges the core American values of all who are pulled into it.
