Get ready for a reboot of Roman Polanski‘s Rosemary’s Baby.
NBC is bringing the movie, which is a Ira Levin novel adaptation, to television in mini-series form. Production on the series is slated to begin in January in Paris, France.
The series is rumored to be 4-hours long.
NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke shared some insight on the project, “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.”
No official premiere date or casting member news has been given at this time.

NBC’s Live production The Sound of Music received mixed reviews from viewers during and after its initial airing on Dec. 5.
Some loved the movie, while others did not think Carrie Underwood fit the part. In fact the country star was heavily criticized by fans, The von Trapps and even Kym Karath, who played Gretl von Trapp in the original movie version with Julie Andrews.
Underwood posted a response to her critics on Friday (Dec. 6) via Twitter. She wrote: “Plain and simple: Mean people need Jesus. They will be in my prayers tonight… 1 Peter 2:1-25.”
Underwood hasn’t tweeted since. The bible passage she referenced says, Therefore, laying aside all malice, all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and all evil speaking, as newborn babes desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby, if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is gracious.”
