NBC has released a chilling first look at their four-hour Rosemary's Baby miniseries, the first half of which will air this Sunday (May 11). As it's pointed out to us by star Zoe Saldana, the goal of this project isn't to remake Roman Polanski's classic horror film, which was an adaptation of Ira Levin's novel.
Less than a week after announcing a May premiere, NBC birthed a full trailer for Rosemary’s Baby, their “miniseries event” take on Ira Levin’s devilish 1967 novel. There’s no possible way to approach this update without making immediate mental comparisons to the stellar 1968 film from Roman Polanski, unless you haven’t seen that film, of course.
NBC has finally announced they’ll be airing the Lionsgate Television small-screen remake of Rosemary’s Baby in two two-hour blocks on Sunday, May 11 and Thursday, May 15, between the hours of 9 p.m. and 11 p.m. ET. In other words, it’ll serve as the perfect entryway into the Mother’s Day foreplay that will no doubt happen, while you and your sex mate are both silently thinking about accidentally getting pregnant with the devil. It’s better than flowers and oil massages, no?
Following up on the very teasy Rosemary's Baby teaser, NBC has offered us a slightly better look at their anticipated miniseries, which is based on the 1967 best-selling suspense novel by Ira Levin. This new video gives us a look at a distressed Zoe Saldana as the title character, and her husband Guy, played by Suits star Patrick J. Adams.
Fear is born! That's the tagline for NBC's miniseries adaptation of Ira Levin's Rosemary's Baby. But apparently, fear still doesn't have a due date. While NBC has begun to promote the series, the new poster doing a pretty great job of teasing the story, there's still no premiere date set for the event. But we know it's "coming soon," at the very least.
I would have sworn even eight months ago that Roman Polanski’s near-perfect 1968 spookfest Rosemary’s Baby would have been untouchable, but NBC has turned the classic into an upcoming miniseries, and actress Zoe Saldana has been cast to lead the film as Rosemary herself. This is nowhere near as devilish a casting decision as the network could have made, but it doesn’t exactly make it essential viewing just yet.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the network has ordered limited series focusing on Hilary Clinton and the pilgrims, plus two miniseries updates to Stephen King’s The Tommyknockers and Rosemary’s Baby. The latter was enough to make me literally utter, “Egad,” under my breath.
