[TV] NBC Gives Birth To “Rosemary’s Baby’ Miniseries

Variety reports that nearly a week after the success of its live broadcast “The Sound of Music” musical, NBC has officially greenlit another version of a classic project and will be airing a four-hour miniseries adaptation of “Rosemary’s Baby.”

Scott Abbott and James Wong are writing the screenplay based on the 1967 Ira Levin novel about the problems that arise when a young married couple who move into a haunted Paris apartment. Agnieszka Holland (“Treme,” “The Wire”) will direct.

Ira Levin’s mesmerizing book was a groundbreaking reflection on how effective and influential a psychological thriller could be,” said Quinn Taylor, Executive Vice President, Movies, Miniseries and International Co-Productions, NBC Entertainment. “We’re looking forward to adapting his incredible work and bringing those indelible characters to a new generation of viewers.

Lionsgate Television is producing, with Joshua Maurer, Alix Witlin and David Stern serving as executive producers.

    I’m okay with the move to Paris…but why a “haunted” apartment?

    Not happy that my second favorite horror movie of all time is getting the made for TV movie treatment, sigh.

      Completely agree with you. Huge fan of the original and probably second on my list as well. I hate that they have to remake, literally such a perfect film. I don’t condone a tv adaptation but I love Zoe Zaldana. I think she’s a great actress. For her alone I’ll give this a chance. Definetly got my attention now. And who knows, It could be decent.
