Earlier this year is was reported that NBC was looking to develop a new series based on the horror thriller Rosemary's Baby. The network is moving forward with the series and have greenlit it as a four-hour miniseries.
The series will be based on the 1967 Ira Levin novel, which was previously adapted into a film by director Roman Polanski.
According to THR the NBC version of the story will "revolve around 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 have ulterior motives regarding the child’s birth."
NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke had this to say in a 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.”
This is such a great and creepy story. Polanski's film is a favorite of mine, and I hope that NBC is about to turn the story into a great miniseries. I'm looking forward to seeing what they do with it. Hopefully they are able to deliver the full craziness of the story!
