NBC has ordered a Rosemary's Baby miniseries, the network announced Tuesday. The four-hour project will be an adaptation of Ira Levin's 1967 book.
"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," NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke said in a statement. "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."
