The newest take on L. Frank Baum's renowned book series "The Wizard Of Oz" adopts a dark and sexy makeover. Dorothy Gale, played by Puerto Rican talent Adria Arjona, once again sets foot down the yellow brick road to see the Wizard -- and she does. NBC's first feature trailer for the new Oz is darker and sexier than ever; a diversion from its traditional adaptation as a children's story.

"Emerald City" Storyline: Dorothy Journey's Through A Dangerous World & Uncovers Her True Destiny

Dorothy blinks her eyes and finds herself snatched in a tornado once again after wishing there was more. Her cute tiny Toto, however, appears to have grown up a little is now in the form of a trained K-9 police dog. On their voyage down the yellow brick road to the Emerald City to find the Wizard, played by "Daredevil" Vincent D'Onofrio, the two are swept into a mystical world, described 411 Mania.

As Dorothy battles evil witches, she finds a rather hunky and topless Scarecrow, portrayed by "The Great Fire's" Oliver-Jackson Cohen. Together, they pass through hostile realms, lethal warriors, dark magic and a bloody combat for power,-- all in a world of science and magic.

The Team Behind NBC's "Emerald City"

"Mirror Mirror's" brilliant Tarsem Singh directed all 10 episodes of the first season, which debuts January 6 at 9 p.m. on NBC.

"Emerald City" is Oz totally reimagined -- a realm where familiar characters show up in fresh, unforeseen ways -- and where an innocent young woman holds the destiny of kingdoms in her hands. Dorothy unearths her true identity as she journeys down the yellow brick road and she realizes it has becomes so much more.
