NBC Un-Cancels ‘Wizard Of Oz’ Event Series

Ding-dong the witch is alive! Eight months after abruptly pulling the plug on Emerald City, NBC has revived its re-imagining of the classic Wizard of Oz universe with a 10-episode order. The project — which blends elements from author L. Frank Baum’s 14-novel collection — was scrapped last August due to creative differences between EP/writer Josh Friedman (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) and NBC. David Schulner (The Event) has now taken the showrunner reins from Friedman.
