Croatia is set to provide the scenery for another international series….

This time it is NBC’s ‘Emerald City’, a 10-part series on the famous Wizard of Oz story. Filming for the series is set to take part in Croatia, Spain and Hungary, according to KFTV.

The 10-episode series, produced by Shaun Cassidy and David Schulner, centres on the Wizard of Oz, which will be played by Vincent D’Onofrio. Adria Arjona, from True Detective, will play Dorothy.

Emerald City , a Universal TV production, is described as a modern and dark reimagining of the classic tale of Oz in the vein of Game Of Thrones, drawing upon stories from Baum’s original 14 books.

Croatia has been the scene for a number of international productions recently, most famously Game of Thrones, The Dig, and The Lake.
