Rosemary's baby

Just in time for Mother’s Day, comes the most inappropriate television event one could think of — NBC’s latest horror-themed miniseries, ‘Rosemary’s Baby‘.  (Last fall, they took a stab at the limited-run series with ‘Dracula’.)  Blasphemy?  (In more ways than one?)  The original movie is considered one of the finest and most revered in the horror genre.  But star Zoe Saldana stresses, “The desire wasn’t to do a remake of Roman Polanski’s,” with co-star Jason Isaacs calling it more of a “re-imagining.”

At any rate, on a night reserved for moms, once mom is done clearing the table after the meal she made and finishes the dishes, gather her and the whole family together for some supernatural chills.

Based on the 1967 best-selling suspense novel by Ira Levin, this new adaptation of “Rosemary’s Baby” centers on a young married couple who escapes New York and moves to Paris with hopes of leaving their sad past behind. After a series of unfortunate events, Rosemary and Guy Woodhouse are presented with an offer they can’t refuse – an apartment at the most prestigious address in the city. Problem is, it comes with a haunted past and an immeasurable price.

In preparation, NBC has released a featurette giving a glimpse of the new miniseries with comments from the cast about how this take differs from the original film.

The network has also unveiled some new still photos:
