The project is an adaptation of the 1967 best-selling suspense novel by Ira Levin. Production began in January in Paris. The project, produced by Lionsgate Television, with Joshua Maurer, Alix Witlin and David Stern serving as executive producers, is set to debut this May.
Scott Abbott ("Introducing Dorothy Dandridge," "Winchell") and James Wong ("American Horror Story") will write the screenplay. Agnieszka Holland, who has been nominated for both an Oscar ("Europa, Europa") and an Emmy Award ("Treme"), will direct.
"Ira Levin's mesmerizing book was a groundbreaking reflection on how effective and influential a psychological thriller could be," said Quinn Taylor, Executive Vice President, Movies, Miniseries and International Co-Productions, NBC Entertainment. "We're looking forward to adapting his incredible work and bringing those indelible characters to a new generation of viewers."
"Rosemary's Baby" centers on a young married couple who move into a Paris apartment that has a haunted past. After getting pregnant, the wife becomes increasingly suspicious that both her husband and their neighbors will have ulterior motives when her child is born.
The book was later adapted into a feature film directed by Roman Polanski.
