Tin Man, a three-part reimagining of L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz will air on Seven later this month.
Imbued with a heavy science fiction emphasis it was originally broadcast in the US last December to poor reviews. Variety said it fused elements of The Matrix, Blade Runner, and Snow White but said it was “a bit of a mess.”
USA Today said “Ambitious and intriguing though it may be, Tin Man is simply too long, too grim and too determined to impose a Lord of the Rings universe-saving quest on top of a simpler, gentler story.”
Seven will air it in two parts at 8:30pm Friday Dec 26 and Saturday Dec 27.
