Possible new CBS Show: ER Meets the Emerald City?

Did you hear the idea for a new CBS show? CBs is developing a "medical soap inspired by 'The Wizard of Oz,'" CNN's John Berman reports. Seriously.

So it is like "ER" meet the Emerald City. "General Hospital" meets the munchkins. "Grey's Anatomy" meets the yellow brick road.

According to Berman, you could say "The Wizard of Oz" has organ transplant themes with the scarecrow getting a brain, and the tin man a heart. There are psychiatric themes, the lion needs courage. There are even veterinary these with Toto. Perhaps the wicked witch could be an HMO?

Still, this seems like a sketchy idea from CBS, says Berman, so I'm giving them the "Time to Get Time Warner Cable Award." Because you know, Time Warner Cable is still not airing CBS.
