See the darker side of the ‘Wizard of Oz’

'Emerald City' Premieres January 6, Starring Adria Arjona

‘Emerald City’ is taking the audience on a whole new journey down the famous yellow brick road. Starring Adria Arjona as Dorothy Gale, this TV series is a darker take on the Wizard of Oz.

Arjona explained that the show is “a lot more grounded and realistic.”  We will get to know more about the characters from the Wizard of Oz.  With this new look at the story, we will see that it is “mystical and dark and scary because it’s so human,” says Arjona.

Vincent D’Onofrio, who plays the wizard, stated: “I think we have a good shot at doing something that’s going to amaze people because we really took the time. (There is) ten hours of content where you see all these real people with human issues in this kind of fantastical world.”

While this is a new take on a famous classic, the cast is well aware of the legacy.  Arjona thinks “the original Dorothy is wonderful, I just think this take on Dorothy is a lot more realistic, a lot more grounded.  It’s deeper.  And I think the issues Dorothy is dealing with are a lot more relatable today.”
