[TV] “Rosemary’s Baby” Clip Makes Me Say “No Thanks”

Rosemary's Baby - Season 2014
NBC has released the first clip from “Rosemary’s Baby”, their four-hour miniseries adaptation of the 1967 best-selling suspense novel by Ira Levin.

In the clip we see Zoe Saldana as Rosemary fighting with her husband about getting the baby tested while in the womb. He doesn’t like the idea because, well, duh. The footage plays like an NBC Soap with unrealistic overdramatic acting. Weather or not this scene is bad because it’s missing the set up or not, it turned me off a great deal.

We also have a new batch of images from the series that includes Red Lights‘ Carole Bouquet, Doghouse‘s Christina Cole and Jason Isaacs. The series was directed by Agnieska Holland and produced by Lionsgate TV.

NBC’s “Rosemary’s Baby” miniseries kicks off on Sunday, May 11 (9-11 p.m. ET) and concludes on Thursday, May 15.

It centers on Rosemary Woodhouse (Zoe Saldana), a young wife and would-be mother who, with her husband Guy (Patrick J. Adams), moves into a Paris apartment that has a dark past. After finally getting pregnant, she becomes increasingly suspicious that both her husband and their mysterious neighbors have ulterior motives about the future of her child.

    I’m hesitant about this, but I’ll watch it just to see.

    Also, I promise I’m not saying this to be a dick…but it’s whether…not weather.

      Ironic that you are whinging about someone making typos, yet say “your right.”

    This clip makes me want to steer clear as well. Suddenly I’m not feeling too positive about this. Nope, not at all. Think I’ll pass.

    I don’t think it looks too terrible. I’ll probably watch it since it’s just a mini series.
