CBS is taking a stab at turning L. Frank Baum's "Wizard of Oz" into a TV show.
No, we don't quite get how that's going to work either. Given that it's named after Baum's heroine who was just trying to go home, perhaps this drama will drop Dorothy into an Oz-like hospital that has one doctor with no heart and another without a brain.
Here's what it is clear, though: the project is being written by Emily Fox ("Ghost Whisperer"), who will also executive produce with Carl Beverly and Sarah Timberman.
Beverly and Timberman also EP CBS' "Elementary," which brought Sherlock Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) to New York with a female Watson (Lucy Liu). So far, that experiment has been working out well - the network renewed "Elementary" for a second season.
What do you think - does this concept sound promising?
