NBC has uncancelled Emerald City.
The network has U-turned on its decision to cancel the fantasy drama ahead of its 2015 premiere, THR confirms:
David Schulner is attached write, exec produce and serve as showrunner on the 10-episode drama, which hails from Universal Television — where he’s under an overall deal.
Here’s the logline for the new take: In the blink of a tornado’s eye, 20-year-old Dorothy Gale and her K9 police dog are 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 a young girl becomes a headstrong warrior who holds the fate of kingdoms in her hands.
Meanwhile, and this is of no surprise, the network has officially cancelled The Slap, which was billed as a limited-run (mini)series with the potential to return for multiple seasons.
With ratings and critical response not good enough, the network has decided to revert The Slap into one-and-done miniseries.
