  • The Yellow Brick Road stops here.
    NBC has opted not to move forward with Emerald CityDeadline.com reports.
    The 10-episode drama, which was said to be a dark and modern reimagining of L. Frank Baum's original Wizard of Oz story, was ordered straight-to-series in January. The network had been advertising Emerald City as recently as late July at Comic-Con.

    According to the report, the project is not moving forward because NBC and executive producer Josh Friedman (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) had different visions about Emerald City's creative direction. It's still possible that Universal will shop the project elsewhere.
