NBC Buys ‘Wizard Of Oz’ Drama Emerald City

A century after the release of L. Frank Baum’s Wizard Of Oz
series, the books have become the toast of this TV development season.
NBC just nabbed Emerald City, an Oz-themed drama from Siberia
creator/showrunner Matthew Arnold.

Emerald City, which Arnold is writing and executive producing through
Universal Television, is described as a dark reimagining of the
classic tale of Oz in the vein of Game Of Thrones, drawing upon
stories from Baum’s original 14 books.

Timothy Dalton in Penny Dreadful is awesome!
Not sure what to make of the Oz series though. It has potential to be be both awesome or a horribly bloody disaster, or maybe even an awesomely horrible disaster.

EDIT: I was just looking at the Wikipedia page for NBC's Dracula, and it says David Knauf, the creator of Carnivale, will be serving as Head Writer/Show Runner. I did not know that.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

NBC developing multiple timeline crime drama and body switch thriller

Time To Time

The high concept drama Time To Time is about two star-crossed police
officers, separated by 27 years in time, who work together to solve
murders.
Ricochet

Ricochet is a high-concept serialized action/thriller about a
professional hitman who is trapped in a coma and forced to serve as a
guinea pig for a secret NSA espionage program; a project that uses
technology discovered while researching near-death-experiences to send
operatives into other people’s bodies.

Good news about Timothy Dalton in Penny Dreadful. The "dark" Oz bit makes me cringe, as any use of the word dark does these days, but I imagine it will be more like a Once Upon A Time copycat.

Huh? "Star-crossed" is an adjective used for lovers who are doomed never to be together. Hard to see how that fits the described premise. I guess they're connected by some kind of mental link, so maybe that's how they "meet" and fall in love.

Anyway, it reminds me of Awake in terms of the police investigations crossing between two time frames. It should be much easier for the future person to solve the past person's cases, though, since he or she could just look in an old newspaper and see who was finally found guilty. Although I guess it'd mainly be unsolved cold cases, that sort of thing.

(And yes, the headline does say "multiple timelines," but sometimes laypeople use that to mean just different time periods rather than alternate universes.)

Immaculate Conception Drama From John Glenn Gets Put Pilot Commitment At NBC

Conception, a supernatural mystery drama from writer John Glenn (Eagle Eye) and producer David Janollari, has been set up at NBC with a put pilot commitment. The project hails from Universal Television where Glenn’s and Janollari’s companies, John Glenn Entertainment and David Janollari Entertainment, are both based, and marks a rare put pilot commitment for NBC’s sibling studio. Co-written by Glenn and Lars Jacobson, Conception tracks a modern-day immaculate conception on a large scale. The show follows those few children that survived and how they’re destined to change the world.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

Looks like the Blake's 7 remake is not confirmed for Xbox:
Kate Barnes [...] Executive Producer at Microsoft's EMEA TV [...] had this to say: "I think the rumours took on a lot of speed because sci-fi is obviously something at the heart of Xbox, but no, there's nothing to that." Apparently no programming has been confirmed bar the already announced Halo TV series which was described as having obvious appeal as the console's biggest franchise.

^Oh, you mean a potential spoiler for TWD, because it could mean the actor is going to leave the series? I'm not sure that's necessarily so, since sometimes series actors do other pilots and whether they stay or leave is contingent on whether the pilot sells.

Read something saying he's doing the new show but he won't be leaving TWD.
