(Almost) Weekly Update: E! to take on 'Oz'-inspired drama

First up, it was announced on Monday that E! is developing a TV series inspired by Oz. But, before you get excited, remember that this is the same channel that has several shows about the Kardashian sisters... Anyway, the new drama is in the scripting stage and is called "Dorothy". Here's a logline thanks to Entertainment Weekly... "Inspired by the book Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz, a girl from Kansas falls for a man and moves with him to the Emerald City. From writer Natalie Krinsky (Gossip Girls, Grey's Anatomy) and Warner Horizon Television." Read the full report from EW Online here.

A new Dorothy of Oz sneak peek was aired recently on ET Canada, and has been uploaded to YouTube. There are a couple of new clips in there, as well as a sneak peek at two new songs. You can watch that here. 

Speaking of Dorothy of Oz, the second prequel comic is out now in stores and digitally. You can read a preview of it here on artist Blair Shedd's site. 

Dorothy and the Witches of Oz has added three more screenings for this summer at different film festivals and Oz conventions... details on the film's Facebook page.  

All the Oz movie news for this week that is.
