iflix, the world’s leading Internet TV service for emerging markets, offering subscribers unlimited access to thousands of TV shows, movies and more, is thrilled to premiere Emerald City, a fantastic reimagining of L. Frank Baum's The Wizard of Oz. From today, subscribers in the Philippines can now stream and download the first six episodes of NBCUniversal’s awesome new drama series, with new episodes fast-tracked from the United States every week, exclusively on iflix.
Swept up into the eye of a tornado, 20-year-old Dorothy Gale (Adria Arjona) is 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. Directed by renowned filmmaker, Tarsem Singh, the epic, romantic and fantastical Emerald City is an empowering tale of a young woman finding her true strength and identity even as she battles to bring a divided world together.
Emerald City joins iflix’s outstanding library of popular and highly acclaimed exclusives, including worldwide smash hit Mr. Robot, Aftermath, Channel Zero: Candle Cove, The Magicians, Fargo, Aquarius and more.
iflix Group Chief Content Officer, James Bridges, commented: “Emerald City is an epic, enthralling and much darker take on the world of Oz, brought to life for a new generation with director Tarsem Singh’s jaw-dropping, breathtaking visual flair. We’re thrilled once again to partner with NBCUniversal International Distribution to bring this epic series to viewers across Southeast Asia for the first time, exclusively on iflix.”
