The E! Entertainment Network is more well known for its reality show crapola like anything Kardashian related or the Anna Nicole Smith train wreck hour, but they now seem to be in the process of putting together a slate of scripted fair. Entertainment Weekly has the full list of the shows being developed, and for the nerdy amongst us, one stands out above the others.
The show will be called Dorothy, and E! describes it thusly:
DOROTHY – Inspired by the books “Dorothy” and “The Wizard of Oz,” a girl from Kansas City falls for a man and moves with him to the Emerald City to work at his Emerald Hotel. From writer Natalie Krinsky (“Gossip Girl,” “Grey’s Anatomy”) and Warner Horizon Television.
Is it just me, or does that statement not make a lot of sense? Do they mean Seattle when they say “Emerald City” or is there another Emerald City? And is there going to be some weird May-December romance thing now with Dorothy and the Wizard? Maybe E! should stick to giving has-beens and heiresses for show material…
