Emerald City in the Media

WTF!!!

 

I thought this was a done deal! I am so disappointed. It says they are shopping it elsewhere so maybe it will land somewhere else.

Yeah, I was really curious where they were going to go with this.  It sucks the creative/marketing differences were too far apart.

I'm sad about this, I was genuinely looking forward to it. I hope they can shop it to another network, though I'm not holding my breath.

Here is the spot to discuss Emerald City in the Media. Picked up, cancelled, picked up, my daughter, my sister....

Nice work if you can get it, I guess! But on VDO's Facebook page, he mentioned being in Spain (with accompanying pics). The latest batch was hashtagged with NBC and Emerald City, so the show must be filming there.

 

As I said...nice work if you can get it. (It does look great there, though.)

‘Emerald City’ Trailer: NBC’s New Drama Starring Vincent D’Onofrio Is ‘Oz’ Via Westeros

 

Quote

Since HBO’s juggernaut hit series debuted in 2011, numerous “[X], but like Game of Thrones” concepts have been tossed around by TV creators on the regular. Few of them have been made so far, but NBC’s upcoming Tarsem Singh-directed drama Emerald City is gunning for the label. A dark new take on the Land of Oz fantasy setting created by L. Frank Baum that began with his The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz, the show stars Vincent D’Onofrio as the Wizard and Adria Arjona as an older version of Dorothy Gale. Emerald City sees Dorothy transported by tornado along with a K9 police dog into a mystical land of competing realms, lethal warriors, dark magic and a bloody battle for supremacy. A new trailer laying things out hit Facebook earlier today, and you can watch it [link in article]

So...this is more Game of Thrones than The Wizard of Oz. At least it isn't a reboot, so it'll be interesting to see if this re-imagined take transfers well on broadcast TV.

I'm kind of surprised NBC didn't put Emerald City on a better night, Fridays are considered dump nights on tv land.

You can say Grimm survived so long because it was a Friday show.

I usually find (nowadays) that shows are announced as a Limited Series Event mostly because the Network doesn't expect them to catch on. If Emerald City was a ratings hit, I imagine that "limited" series title would be altered to include multiple seasons.

I'm a little disappointed in the ratings, guess this might just end up being a limited series event.

Deadline considered the ratings "solid":

It is NBC after all, and Friday night to boot. I wouldn't completely write it off as a one-and-done just yet. Although I'm guessing this must cost a ton of money to produce...

That's good to hear. I saw the ratings and they were so close to Grimm which only got a short/final season pick up and thought Emerald City was low.

And they actually show all 10 episodes instead of pulling it. 

I don't think that'll be an issue. In today's climate, even dead shows seem to air to the end, if just to try and recoup some money, and if just to plug scheduling holes. The last time I recall a show actually getting yanked altogether was Wicked City on ABC, but that went to 0.4 in an episode or two. Today, networks seem to drag their feet, probably because nothing outside of maybe Empire and/or The Big Bang Theory does big numbers these days.

With the money spent on this, I think NBC will try to ride it out unless it gets to that dreaded 0.4 or so. But who knows?

Good.  I really hope so.  There have been several shows I've watched where they were pulled, and a few got the last few episodes burned off in the summer, while some shows had episodes that never saw the light of day.  But these shows were 5 years ago or more ("Day Break", "The Nine", among others), and as you said, TV has changed a lot in the last few years.

Poor Emerald City, just not doing well in the ratings at all.  Hopefully we get a satisfactory ending with episode 10.

Wonder why they don't move it over to SyFy? This really isn't a broadcast network kind of show even if it is based on a children's story.

Why is friday night still concidered a dead zone? With dvrs and the nbc app you can watch episodes anytime you want after the original air dates.

Yes, but ratings at the actual air time still dominate because of ad revenue, etc., outdated or not. It still determines what shows make it or don't.

I am rarely home on Friday nights, so I watch on the weekend on my iPad. I guess I am not helping the ratings.... I hope this show survives.

I would hope in this day and age that's taken into account, at least somewhat. I watch it over the weekend, too.

That's because there's college basketball taking up Friday night, all day Saturday and Sunday..... believe me, I have to juggle what's on the DVR so my boyfriend doesn't miss a game. I am always watching this show online, on Saturday morning.

The chart Morrigan2575 posted is somewhat misleading -- shows compete against other shows on the same network. You need to check The Cancellation Bear or TV Grim Reaper to see how shows are doing. However, TV Grim Reaper has it "Likely to be cancelled (http://www.tvgrimreaper.com/2017/01/30/predictions-week-20-emeraldcity-is-likely-to-be-canceled/2394/), so that's not good.

It adjusted up a tenth for the final episode but, i don't think that will help much.

Apparently, there was an event called Emerald City Comic Con yesterday as I saw a comment on VDO's Facebook page about it. Nice for the fans.

"Emerald City" is Seattle's nickname.  They did have Vincent D’Onofrio for an hour interview, and signed autographs.  Looking at his Twitter feed, everyone had a great time.

Emerald City is coming out on DVD and Blu-Ray on July 25th. The packaging says Season 1, but some other shows cut short have had that happen, too. Time will tell...

Interesting... did they forget to put Tip on the cover?

Odd that they would put East on the cover and not Tip.  Tip/Ozma had more lines and had much more impact on the plot.

And the show is officially done. Kind of figured since VDO just booked another 13-episode series on Syfy with Kristin Lehman and Meat Loaf. But still sort of a bummer.

I knew it, NBC's genre shows have done horribly since Grimm, which they also failed to find a pairing that worked.
