File this under really strange ideas for television shows: E! is developing a scripted drama inspired by the book Dorothy and The Wizard of Oz. “Dorothy” (as it’s currently titled) will follow a girl from Kansas City who falls in love with a man and moves with him to Emerald City to work at his Emerald Hotel. And we need another version of “The Wizard of Oz” because … ? An animated film, “Dorothy of Oz,” is on the way, as is Michelle Williams’ and James Franco’s “Oz: The Great and Powerful.” The original “Wizard of Oz” is holding up quite nicely. And “Return to Oz,” the 1985 sequel starring Fairuza Balk, is a classic as far as I’m concerned. So, I think we’re all set on the “Wizard of Oz” front. Obviously, the only way this Wiz TV show can be good is if they cast Kim Kardashian as Dorothy and Kanye West as The Wizard. [EW]

Start Warming Up Your Vocal Chords: NBC’s “The Sing-Off” Premieres Tonight

There was always something sexy about a cappella boys … the beatboxing, the not being afraid to bust out in song and dance, the matching outfits. Swoon. So, “The Sing-Off” is premiering tonight at 8pm (EST) on NBC. Since we’re “Glee” fanatics, we’re doubly psyched for the two new two hour episodes in the next two days. The show’s hosted by Nick Lachey (welcome back to relevancy!)m but the best part is that the adorable Ben Folds is judging alongside Boyz II Men member Shawn Stockham and Pussycat Dolls lead singer Nicole Scherzinger. The scores will tallied by viewer votes and the winner gets $100,000 and an Epic Records/Sony Music recording contract. Watch above to see the eight a cappella groups in the competition singing David Bowie‘s “Under Pressure” together. A couple of these teams are kinda lackluster, but already cheering for The SoCals ’cause it’s my new city and Blondie’s got some chords on him. Who’s your team? [NBC] Keep reading »
