So, having just published Dorothy in Wonderland, I’m feeling pretty excited to hear news that all three major TV networks are working on either an Alice in Wonderland or Wizard of Oz adaptation. Pretty lucky timing on my part to happen to be in on this trend!
- ABC is taking on Wonderland with a spinoff of their Once Upon a Time Series, now titled Once Upon a Time in Wonderland
- NBC is going for “a dark reimagining of the world of Oz” with their new project Emerald City.
- CBS is working on a medical drama series titled Dorothy with inspiration from the Baum books. The medical drama part is sort of a curiosity, but sounds like they’re playing it like they did Sherlock Holmes, which has been a huge success so far. Who knows, it could be the best of the bunch.
- Also, Syfy channel, the network that brought us the awesomeness that is Sharknado, is working on an Oz show called Warriors of Oz.
Hopefully the result of all of this will be renewed excitement about the worlds of Oz and Wonderland and won’t cause burnout. Come on, TV Land, do me proud.
