NBC has released the Official Synopsis of Emerald City episode “The Beast Forever” (1.01) that will be aired on Friday, January 6 at 09:00-10:00 PM.
SERIES PREMIERE – DOROTHY’S JOURNEY TO FIND HER MOTHER LEADS HER TO A NEW AND MAGICAL WORLD
While searching for her mother, Dorothy Gale (Adria Arjona) is swept up into the eye of a tornado and transported to a mystical world where an all-powerful ruler (Vincent D’Onofrio) governs over one kingdom, has outlawed magic and faces not only the wrath of a growing cauldron of witches but a looming disaster brought on by a mythical force. While on her path to find her way home, Dorothy comes upon a wounded soldier (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) with amnesia and a young man (Gerran Howell) attempting to free his best friend (Jordan Loughran) from a mysterious woman (guest star Fiona Shaw).
In Emerald City, in the blink of a tornado’s eye, 20-year-old Dorothy Gale and a K9 police dog are swept into a world far removed from our own – a mystical land of competing realms, lethal warriors, dark magic and a bloody battle for supremacy.
Emerald City is produced by Universal Television, with executive producers Tarsem Singh, David Schulner, Shaun Cassidy,Josh Friedman and Matthew Arnold.
