NBC Greenlights 'Rosemary's Baby' Project LA Times

NBC is developing a project based on the Ira Levin novel “Rosemary’s Baby,” which was also the basis for the 1968 movie starring Mia Farrow as an expectant mother who’s concerned some creepy neighbors have occult plans for her baby.

The network greenlighted a four-hour miniseries based on the piece, the Los Angeles Times reports.

The remake will be set in Paris, with the young couple moving into a creepy apartment building, a departure from the New York City setting of the novel and movie. The plot is similar, with the wife becoming pregnant and then growing suspicious of strange behavior from her husband and neighbors.

Agnieszka Holland, an Oscar nominee, will direct the project, with Scott Abbott and James Wong writing. Production will start in January.
