NBC’s hefty new 10-part take on the Wizard of Oz story, Emerald City, is set to film in Croatia, Hungary and Spain.
The dark fantasy drama comes from Universal Television and is exec produced by Shaun Cassidy and showrunner David Schulner.
It centres on the eponymous wizard, played by Vincent D’Onofrio, a charismatic scientist and leader who inspires both fear and respect in a mystical kingdom of witches, warriors and magic.
Tarsem Singh directs the ten-episode, straight-to-series order, from scripts by David Schulner, Matthew Arnold and Joelle Garfinkel. An international crew is assembling on this one, which also stars Adria Arjona (True Detective) as Dorothy.
Hungary has hosted many high-profile productions, with recent coups including Ridley Scott’s The Martian and epic historical TV drama The Last Kingdom. Spain is currently revelling in once again playing host to the behemoth Game of Thrones, an honour which has also fallen to Croatia, previously home to US TV series The Dig.
