So, Salma Hayek is producing the miniseries of Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West for ABC! Now, this is for the novel by Gregory Maguire, not the musical–which is being worked on for film. Despite the sexual situations and the political nature of the book, I love reading it, but I don’t read it to analyze the text. I read it because I think it’s an interesting story. But I do think I prefer the musical version more. Elphaba + Fiyero + As Long As You’re Mine = <3.
So, for all you Wicked fans, who would you like to see play the characters in this new miniseries?
