This January, Adria Arjona will be the one stepping into Dorothy Gale’s famous shoes in the new NBC series Emerald City. She’ll be accompanied by a K9 police dog and find an Oz torn by a battle for supremacy, powerful magic and lethal warriors. The one-hour drama series also features Vincent D’Onofrio as the Wizard, Joely Richardson as one of several witches, and Oliver Jackson-Cohen (pictured) as a steamy new love interest for Dorothy. With visionary director Tarsem Singh at the helm, expect a show rich in mind-bending visuals and dark twists. nbc.com
