Topic: Tin Man......SciFi Channel's Oz with a twist....
I jsut saw a commercial for Tin Man, a SciFi original miniseries It will premiere on December 2nd. I think it sounds pretty cool, I hope it turns out that way:
"Tin Man is the SCI FI Channel's twist on L. Frank Baum's classic novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, a six-hour miniseries slated for a December 2007 premiere.
A sometimes psychedelic, often twisted, and always outrageous take on the book, SCI FI's Tin Man is the epic tale of DG (Zooey Deschanel), a young woman plucked from her humdrum life and thrust into The Outer Zone (the O.Z.), a fantastical realm rife with wonder, but oppressed by dark magic. In the adventure of a lifetime, DG discovers her true identity, battles evil winged-monkey-bats, and attempts to fulfill her destiny. Her perilous journey begins on the fabled Old Road that leads to a wizard known as the Mystic Man (Richard Dreyfuss).
Along the way, she is joined by a decidedly strange trio of companionsâ€”"Glitch" (Alan Cumming), an odd man missing half his brain; "Raw" (Raoul Trujillo), a quietly powerful wolverine-like creature longing for inner courage, and "Cain" (Neal McDonough), a heroic former policeman (known in the O.Z. as Tin Men, for their tin badges) seeking vengeance for his scarred heart. Ultimately, DG's destiny leads her to an emotional and terrifying showdown with the scintillatingly wicked sorceress Azkadellia (Kathleen Robertson), whose ties to DG are closer than anyone could have imagined. DG's life, as well as the very future of the O.Z., hangs in the balance."
