The Parents Television Council is warning families about the questionable content in upcoming TV shows, including well-known children's programs.
According to PTC spokesman Dr. Christopher Gildemeister, there are two new shows based on famed children's stories that need to be on the radar of parents.
The first is NBC's "Emerald City," a violent and warped reboot of the "Wizard of Oz."
He says it's sad to see what's been done to this treasured property that was created for kids.
"And I don't mean the movie," he says. "I mean the books - back in 1900, written by Frank Baum – that were always intended for children."
The second show is CW's "Riverdale" based on the comic book characters Archie, Betty, Veronica, and Jughead.
Gildemeister says the show features slap-fights, arson, and murder of teenagers.
"What's next?" he asks. "Are we going to see a dark, edgy take of Winnie the Pooh?"
He recommends families also steer clear from a couple of new shows on Fox: "Star" and "The Mick."
