NBC’s spent two years changing its mind about the modern Wizard of Oz show Emerald City. But if the show’s as great as this photo of Florence Kasumba as the Wicked Witch of the East, then it will totally be worth it.

There are 10 Tarsem Singh-directed episodes of Emerald City to look forward to, even though NBC hasn’t set a premiere date yet. What we have instead are photos of Toto, Dorothy (Adria Arjona), and Lucas the “Scarecrow” (Oliver Jackson-Cohen). Toto is not exactly a “little dog” in this version.

Oh, Tarsem Singh. Let’s hope it’s more The Fall and less Immortals.
