CBS is developing the Wizard of Oz-themed medical drama Dorthy
Elementary executive producers Carl Beverly and Sarah Timberman are developing a new medical drama for CBS entitled Dorothy that features elements from The Wizard of Oz.

The story is set in modern-day New York City and will feature characters inspired by The Wizard of Oz. The concept is similar to what the producers did with their CBS series Elementary that is inspired by Sherlock Holmes and Watson.

Emily Fox (Ghost Whisperer) is writing the pilot script and executive producing alongside Carl Beverly and Sarah Timberman.

The Wizard of Oz has been in the news a lot lately, with Warner Bros. announcing this summer that they are re-releasing the 1939 classic in IMAX 3D this September, to be followed by a 75th Anniversary Collector's Edition Blu-ray 3D release on October 1.
