Want A ‘Wizard Of Oz’-Inspired Medical Drama? CBS Will Give You One, You Weirdo.

They'll see you for your polyps now.  

The team who recently brought us Elementary, the Sherlock Holmes show that is definitely not Sherlock, despite really, really wanting to be, is going back to the literary canon yet again. This time, the show will be called Dorothy, and it will be a medical drama that draws inspiration from the beloved film and book The Wizard of Oz.

Now, that probably means that the characters will be lacking, courage, brains, hearts, etc, but I’m hoping that a more literal approach is taken to the dramatic repurposing, and we get to see things like:

  • Angry flying monkeys invading the ER
  • Witches crushed by houses
  • Twister emergencies every week
  • Junkies posting up in poppy fields

Which experience will we get? It’s anyone’s guess, but probably not the one I’m hoping for.
