We're off to see the wizard! The wizard of . . . Friday Night Lights?
Yes indeed: One of the drama's writers is at work on a modern-day adaptation of The Wizard of Oz, with FNL producer Jason Katims on board to help. The project, called Dorothy Gale, is an hourlong drama being developed for NBC, and according to Variety, the plot goes like this:
Script follows the story of Dorothy, a girl from Kansas who tries to tackle modern-day Manhattan (her version of the Emerald City). Dorothy finds a job in the art world — and must deal with a wicked boss.
It's not the first Oz adaptation we've seen recently (see also: Tin Man, Wicked, an upcoming CGI movie, etc.), and a good number of you think this classic story should stop being messed with, stat. But with such a solid creative team in place, could Dorothy Gale be worth checking out?
