Emerald City

Although no cast members or premiere date have been announced yet, a new drama is poised to premiere sometime this year on NBC titled, Emerald City.

NBC has launched a teaser website with a graphic featuring a woman running from a tornado with the words "coming soon".

Emerald City is a one hour drama from the executive producer of The Sarah Conner Chronicles, and tells the story of a 20 year old Dorothy Gale, who becomes a warrior while trying to protect a "darkly re-imagined" land of Oz.

The official synopsis reads:

Desperate for clues that will lead to the identity of her biological mother, a young woman breaks into a sinister underground facility somewhere in the Midwest. Unable to complete her mission and surrounded by security, our feisty heroine steals a K9 police dog and drives away into the night... and headlong into the path of a raging tornado. In the blink of an eye, she is transported to another world, one far removed from our own - a mystical land of competing kingdoms, lethal warriors, dark magic and a bloody battle for supremacy. This is the fabled Land of Oz in a way you've never seen before, where wicked witches don't stay dead for long and 20-year-old Dorothy Gale becomes a headstrong warrior who holds the fate of kingdoms in her hands. You're not in Kansas anymore, and this is not your grandmother's Oz.

Emerald City is currently in pre-production.
