‘Rosemary's Baby’ Mini-Series Is Coming to NBC

NBC has greenlit the four-hour miniseries Rosemary's Baby, an adaptation of the 1967 best-selling suspense novel by Ira Levin.

Production is set to begin in January in Paris.

The project will be produced by Lionsgate Television, with Joshua Maurer, Alix Witlin and David Stern serving as executive producers.

Scott Abbott (Introducing Dorothy Dandridge, Winchell) and James Wong (American Horror Story) will write the screenplay. Agnieszka Holland, who has been nominated for both an Oscar (Europa Europa) and an Emmy Award (Treme), will direct. Casting will begin immediately.

Here's what NBC Entertainment's Quinn Taylor had to say about the mini-series in a statement.

"Ira Levin's mesmerizing book was a groundbreaking reflection on how effective and influential a psychological thriller could be. We're looking forward to adapting his incredible work and bringing those indelible characters to a new generation of viewers."

Jennifer Salke, President, NBC Entertainment, also added her own statement.

"As we move into the event movie and miniseries space, Rosemary's Baby represents the kind of attention-getting, surprising project that will make noise for us. The story has been updated and moved to Paris, but it's faithful to the spirit of Ira Levin's classic novel. This is a compelling tale wonderfully told."

Lionsgate Television Group Chairman Kevin Beggs had this to say in his statement.

"Rosemary's Baby is an extraordinary project and we're excited to be in the long-form business with NBC."

Rosemary's Baby centers on a young married couple who move into a Paris apartment that has a haunted past. After getting pregnant, the wife becomes increasingly suspicious that both her husband and their neighbors will have ulterior motives when her child is born.

The book was later adapted into a Rosemary's Baby feature film directed by Roman Polanski.

Rosemary's Baby was released June 12th, 1968.

                  NBC seems to love butchering classics.
