Next month NBC will air a four episode mini series based on the 1967 Ira Levin story “Rosemary’s Baby.” It will premier over two nights, Sunday May 11 and Thursday May 15, from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m.
A young married couple named Rosemary and Guy Woodhouse, played by Zoe Saldana and Patrick J. Adams, move into a Paris apartment that has a haunted past. After moving in Rosemary announces she is pregnant. What should be a joyous time however becomes one of stress as she becomes suspicious of her husband and their new neighbors. Rosemary believes they have some kind of evil plan in store once the child is born.
Lionsgate Television is producing the series.
Levin wrote the book in 1967 and it is said to be one of the most famous and critically acclaimed horror books ever written. Roman Polanski directed the film adaptation, staring Mia Farrow and John Cassavetes, in 1968. The film is one of the most critically acclaimed horror films of all time and frequents “best horror films” lists. A made for TV sequel to the film, “What’s Happened to Rosemary’s Baby,” was released in 1976 and in 1997 Levin wrote a sequel titled “Son of Rosemary.”
