NBC has announced a premiere date for fantasy drama Emerald City.

Bowing Friday January 6, the series will kick off with a two hour premiere event from 9-11 pm, before settling into a 9-10 slot the following week.

The series will follow 20-year-old Dorothy Gale (Adria Arjona) as she is swept up into the eye of a tornado and transported to another world — a mystical land where an all-powerful ruler (Vincent D’Onofrio) governs over one kingdom, has outlawed magic, and faces not only the wrath of a growing cauldron of witches but a looming disaster brought on by a mythical force.

Epic, romantic and fantastical, Emerald City is, according to NBC, an empowering tale of a young woman finding her true strength and identity even as she battles to bring a divided world together.

Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Ana Ularu, Mido Hamada, Jordan Loughran, Gerran Howell and Joely Richardson also star.

David Schulner, Shaun Cassidy, Josh Friedman and Matthew Arnold serve as executive producers.

The series is directed by Tarsem Singh Dhandwar, who also serves as an executive producer.
