“Emerald City” – My Complete Interview
NBC’s Emerald City marked the first prime time network TV series adaptation of The Wizard of Oz. 10 episodes aired in early 2017. Low ratings led to a single season; not altogether surprising, since it was announced as a “limited series.” I loved the show and toured to four cities this year presenting my exclusive interview with stars Vincent D’Onofrio (The Wizard) and Adria Arjona (Dorothy). I shared this video as the culmination of a multimedia presentation of “Oz on TV,” an historical look at televised adaptations of The Wizard of Oz from 1956 to today. After the honor of featuring this clip at beloved Oz events: Oz-Stravaganza in Chittenango, NY, The Midwest Oz Fest in Tinley Park, IL, OZtoberFest in Wamego, KS and Emerald City Faire in Haverhill, MA, I am happy to release it now, in it’s entirety, online. To Oz!
