NBC Sets May Dates for 'Rosemary's Baby' Miniseries
Having been in the incubator for some time now, NBC has finally announced an inducement date for their much-hyped miniseries, ‘Rosemary’s Baby.’ Well, it’s actually two dates, and it’s across five nights, making this a particularly lengthy birth.
The network’s four-hour adaptation of Ira Levin’s 1967 best-seller, which was made into a heralded horror film by Roman Polanski in 1968 starring Mia Farrow, will air in two parts. The first comes on Sunday, May 11 at 9/8c with part two airing on Thursday, May 15 at 9/8c.
For those unfamiliar, the story follows Rosemary Woodhouse and her husband Guy as they two await the birth of their first child. Unfortunately for them, their lovely Paris home into which they move happens to be haunted, and Rosemary slowly starts to become especially fearful and paranoid about not only her neighbors, but her husband as well.
Zoe Saldana plays Rosemary, Patrick J. Adams is her husband, and Jason Isaacs (hello!) portrays Roman Castevet, a figure who is your typical coven leader and warlock. The miniseries also stars Carole Bouquet and Christina Cole.
‘Rosemary’s Baby’ will air in the thick of May sweeps. The first night will face off against finales for ABC’s ‘Once Upon a Time’ and ‘Revenge’ as well as the equally potentially terrifying premiere of Showtime’s ‘Penny Dreadful.’
Freshman NBC dramas ‘Crisis’ and ‘Believe’ will return the following Sunday, May 18, in their regular timeslots.
