Watch a 6 Part Video on the Making of Sci-Fi’s Mini Series TIN MAN

     November 28, 2007

Airing this Sunday night through Tuesday night on the Sci-Fi channel is “Tin Man,” a new mini-series based on “The Wizard of Oz.” The reimagining is as far from the Judy Garland movie as you can get -instead of singing and dancing, this new version is brooding and filled with special effects. Here’s the synopsis:

A sometimes psychedelic, often twisted and always outrageous take on the book, Sci Fi’s “Tin Man” follows DG on the adventure of a lifetime. Plunged headlong into another world, DG (Zooey Deschanel) must discover her true identity, battle evil winged-monkey-bats, and attempt to fulfill her destiny. Her perilous journey begins on the fabled Old Road that leads to a wizard known as the Mystic Man. Along the way, she is joined by a decidedly strange trio of companions “Glitch,” (Alan Cumming) an odd man missing half his brain; “Raw,” a quietly powerful wolverine-like creature longing for inner courage, and “Cain,” 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, 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.

To help promote the show, I was provided a making of video that’s broken up into six parts. While I haven’t seen the 6 hour mini-series yet, I did watch most of the videos and have to say it looks cool. If you’re even remotely curious… watch what’s below. “Tin Man” premieres this Sunday night on the Sci-Fi network.
