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.
