CBS is taking on "The Wizard Of Oz," and it appears there will be scalpels and stethoscopes involved.

According to Deadline, "Sherlock" producers Carl Beverly and Sarah Timberman and working with CBS on a New York City-based medical soap titled "Dorothy."

Not much else is known about the project just yet, except that characters like Dorothy, the Tin Man, the Scarecrow, the Lion and the rest of the "Wizard Of Oz" gang will be used as inspiration.

The TV world has been on a "Wizard Of Oz" roll: Last month, Syfy reported that it was working on a miniseries titled "Warriors Of Oz," which will center on a warrior who is "transported to a post-apocalyptic future Oz where he must team up with three other warriors, Heartless, Brainless, and Coward, in order to defeat the evil Wizard who has enslaved the land," as reported by Deadline.

CBS did not immediately return The Huffington Post's request for comment on "Dorothy."
