Do you like news from Hollywood that makes your brain melt like it was a wicked witch splattered with the contents of a mop bucket? Well, today is your day, because Entertainment Weekly is reporting on a total brain-melt of a series in development at CBS, reimagining The Wizard of Oz’s Dorothy as a New York City doctor.
The Tiffany Network is reportedly putting the “high” back into high-concept with a medical drama with the very original title of Dorothy. It’s described as “a medical soap based in New York City, inspired by the characters and themes immortalized in The Wizard of Oz.” Translation: CBS has found a way to rip off Once Upon a Time in a way only slightly less subtle than Once Upon a Time (allegedly) ripped off Fables.
There’s no mention of potential cast members, but the show is being developed by Emily Fox (former writer and producer for The Ghost Whisperer), who will share executive producer duties with the team of Carl Beverly and Sarah Timberman. The latter are responsible for Justified and Elementary, so at least the project has that going for it.
