According to a new report from Variety, Ed Ricourt, director of Now You See Me, will write and produce a new television series together with Legendary Entertainment. Ricourt has also worked on Jessica Jones, Wayward Pines, and the upcoming new Twilight Zone reboot. The official description goes as follows: “When the return of a long-exiled Witch brings fear, division, and war to Oz, the only hope is a servant girl who may become the most powerful and dangerous woman in the land.” The servant girl is not specifically named, although there are a few characters from later Oz books that it could be referring to.
Three strong and exceptionally talented Black YA authors have hit the trifecta with books that are new releases or coming soon and reflect hip-hop culture. As rapper and social theorist KRS-One stated, “Rap is something you do, hip-hop is something you live.”
