Rosemary's Baby To Get The TV Treatment
Classic horror becomes miniseries

Rosemary's Baby

If classic – and other – movies didn’t already have to watch out for the remake monster hunting them all down, now American telly networks and their “limited series” (miniseries to us mortals) are on the lookout for fresh blood too. The latest announcement finds Rosemary’s Baby on track to become a TV project.

NBC boss Bob Greenblatt revealed at the Television Critics’ Association summer press tour that the network is planning a re-telling of Ira Levin’s novel, which provided the fuel for Roman Polanski’s 1968 chiller. It's the story of a young wife (Mia Farrow) who becomes mysteriously pregnant and discovers it’s all part of a terrible supernatural plan. The new version, which has yet to begin casting, finds a young couple moving to Paris and undergoing similar horrors.

That’s not the only title set for a TV reboot, as the network will also look to try a new version of Stephen King’s 1987 novel The Tommyknockers. The tale of a small Maine town whose inhabitants fall under the sway of a buried UFO already had the miniseries treatment back in 1993, but will surface once again. That's alongside a series with Diane Lane playing Hilary Clinton and a sequel to the successful Bible miniseries, which helped kick-start the current fad for short partworks among the major networks across the pond.
