NBC has officially given the green light to another version of a classic film and will be airing a four-hour miniseries adaptation of Rosemary's Baby.
This comes only a week after NBC had a very successful time in the ratings with their live broadcast of The Sound of Music.
Variety added that Scott Abbott and James Wong are writing the screenplay based on the 1967 Ira Levin novel. The project has been in production since July.
USA Today added that casting for the upcoming show would start immediately.
Agnieszka Holland is set to direct the upcoming miniseries.
Quinn Taylor, executive vice president of movies, miniseries and international co-productions for NBC entertainment, spoke about how the new miniseries would bring this story to a wide range of audiences and generations. “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 Taylor.
Lionsgate Television is set to produce along with Joshua Maurer and Alix Witlin and David Stern will serve as executive producers.
