“Emerald City”

Premieres Friday, January 6 from 9 to 11 PM ET/PT on NBC
 
          Swept up into the eye of a tornado, 20-year-old Dorothy Gale (Adria Arjona) is transported to another world — a mystical land where an all-powerful ruler (Vincent D’Onofrio) governs over one kingdom, has outlawed magic, and faces not only the wrath of a growing cauldron of witches but a looming disaster brought on by a mythical force.

          Epic, romantic and fantastical, “Emerald City” is an empowering tale of a young woman finding her true strength and identity even as she battles to bring a divided world together. Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Ana Ularu, Mido Hamada, Jordan Loughran, Gerran Howell and Joely Richardson also star.

 

          Whereas the January 6 premiere event is a two-hour episode, the following Fridays will consist of one-hour episodes from 9 to 10 PM.
