The Wizard of Oz as a TV show. I can totes get behind this! I just wanna know where are there hot boys in Oz?That I will need in order to drool.
A TV show may be sooner than we think, as the new take on The Wizard of Oz may be coming to The CW. Who do I talk to? What petition do I sign?
It is a revisionist take on the classic tale set in present day, 80 years after Dorothy Gale supposedly came home. In reality, the magically-ever-youthful Dorothy has stayed in Oz, presiding over a now fascist fairyland with her perfectly manicured iron fist and the help of her henchmen – the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion. But when another young woman from Kansas is swept up in a tornado and magically dropped into this war-torn Oz, our hero discovers a revolutionary underground of witches and enchanted beings only to learn that she is destined to lead their people in the fight to reclaim Oz from a power-hungry Dorothy’s ruthless clutches. The book will be published by HarperTeen next April, with digital prequel novella, No Place Like Oz, available now.
It’s the fourth Wizard of Oz project to sell within the past few months. We are totes on board with this one – as No Place Like Oz is a fun book!
