Rosemary's Baby - NBC Greenlight Mini-Series

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. — Dec. 10, 2013 — NBC has greenlit the four-hour miniseries “Rosemary’s Baby,” an adaptation of the 1967 best-selling suspense novel by Ira Levin.

Production is set to begin in January in Paris.

The project will be produced by Lionsgate Television, with Joshua Maurer, Alix Witlin and David Stern serving as executive producers.

Scott Abbott (“Introducing Dorothy Dandridge,” “Winchell”) and James Wong (“American Horror Story”) will write the screenplay. Agnieszka Holland, who has been nominated for both an Oscar (“Europa, Europa”) and an Emmy Award (“Treme”), will direct. Casting will begin immediately.

“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.”

Added Jennifer Salke, President, NBC Entertainment: “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.”

“‘Rosemary’s Baby’ is an extraordinary project and we’re excited to be in the long-form business with NBC,” said Kevin Beggs, Chairman, Lionsgate Television Group.

“Rosemary’s Baby” centers on 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 will have ulterior motives when her child is born.

The book was later adapted into a feature film directed by Roman Polanski.
