EMERALD CITY
NEW NBC EPIC FANTASY SHOW
Sometime ago, I've informed you that SyFy is planning to make new fantasy series WARRIORS OF OZ which will follow a warrior from present day Earth is transported to a post-apocalyptic future Oz where he must team up with three other warriors, Heartless, Brainless, and Coward, in order to defeat the evil Wizard who has enslaved the land. Now, NBC has also nabbed an OZ project. Titled EMERALD CITY, their show is described as a dark reimagining of the classic tale of Oz in the vein of "Game Of Thrones! According to 'Deadline' the show will be based on the 14 novels that L. Frank Baum, the writer of "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz", wrote after the initial success of the first book.

TIMOTHY DALTON JOINS
PENNY DREADFUL PERIOD SHOW
Earlier last week, I've informed you that Josh Hartnett, Eva Green and Rory Kinnear have been cast in new period set horror series PENNY DREADFUL, and now the new info is that JAMES BOND and FLASH GORDON star Timothy Dalton has joined them too! In the Sam Mendes directed eight-part series, which will describe the origin stories of famous literary horror characters such as Victor Frankenstein, Frankenstein's monster, Dorian Gray and Count Dracula, as they deal with life in 19th century Victorian London, Timothy Dalton will play African explorer Sir Malcolm! The Showtime series will have extreme horror scenes.

    1. they collected almost all of the big old sitcom stars :) Should be fun and nostalgic especially in today's sea of vulgar and crappy sitcoms

  2. Kirstie's new show could be funny with all those great actors joining her. I also can't believe she's in her sixties.

    Not sure about those Oz projects. It kind of saddens me to see the story go dark like that.

    1. I really like TVLand, too. I like Happily Divorced and even Hot Girls in Cleveland, makes me laugh at times.

      Eat anything good this weekend? Do any fun bakes? I did an egg bake on the grill. Came our super moist.

    2. I'm planning to download HAPPILY DIVORCED, since I love Fran, but the show has just been cancelled this week and will not be getting third season :(

      I do watch HOT IN CLEVELAND sometimes, since it is aired here at our cable TV.

  14. The all-star cast sit come sounds good. We could use a couple decent comedies.

    The shows based on Oz might be interesting, too. We shall see.

  15. All of the above sound rather good methinks. I shall live in hope Middle Earth gets to see them!

  16. I recently attempted to watch Oz the Great and Powerful, and just couldn't finish it. I thought it was complete rubbish. Consequently, I'm a little off Wizard of Oz adaptations for a while.

    Of course, having said that, Emerald City might have hope.

    1. yep, she had a lot of really funny comedy shows and films, she is good.

  20. I do remember your previous post on Emerald City and I find this intriguing. It's one of those things that will either work or fail miserably.

    Penny Dreadful should be good as they are looking at the origins of the stories and the times in which they were written. Sometimes I wish I could visit the past and be invisible just to see how it really was. Too much of history deals with only the famous, but it's the day to day people I'm most interested in.

    1. I wonder if NBC's DRACULA will make it a bit too much for the audience to watch PENNY DREADFUL too, especially with so many Dracula and Frankenstein films also coming up next year

GIVE SOME LOVE TO YOUR DEZZY :)
