In 1968, a film came along that terrified the pants off a generation. Based on the 1967 novel by Ira Levin, Rosemary’s Baby tells the story of Rosemary and Guy Woodhouse who move into a New York apartment with some rather eccentric neighbours. When Rosemary falls pregnant, she begins to believe that her husband may have made a pact with the neighbours, promising the newborn child to be used as a human sacrifice as part of their occult rituals, in exchange for success in his career. Well, be prepared to be scared again as NBC has announced its decision to adapt the film for television. "Ira Levin's mesmerizing book was a groundbreaking reflection on how effective and influential a psychological thriller could be. We're looking forward to adapting his incredible work and bringing those indelible characters to a new generation of viewers.” said Quinn Taylor from NBC Entertainment. Unlike the novel and the Roman Polanski film, this new adaptation will take place in Paris, instead of New York City. “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.” NBC Entertaiment president Jennifer Salke had to say. The four, one-hour miniseries episodes have been written by Scott Abbott (Queen of the Damned) and James Wong (American Horror Story) with Agnieszka Holland (Treme) set to direct. Lionsgate Television is producing with Joshua Maurer, Alix Wiltin and David Stern servings as executive producers. While no casting information has been released yet, it is believe that filming will begin January 2014, in Paris.
