NBC has given a 10-episode straight-to-series order for "Emerald City," a reimagining of the classic Frank L. Baum books that have inspired everything from "The Wizard Of Oz" to "Wicked."

Based on the 14-book series that first created the wonderful - and treacherous - Land of Oz, "Emerald City" is a dramatic and modern reimagining of the tales, which include lethal warriors, competing kingdoms, and the infamous wizard as we've never seen him before. A headstrong 20-year-old Dorothy Gale is unwittingly sent on an eye-opening journey that thrusts her into the center of an epic and bloody battle for control of Oz.
