Los Angeles: 'Rosemary's Baby', which was turned into an equally successful movie by Roman Polanski, is all set to be made into a four-hour miniseries on NBC network.

The production on the series will begin in January in Paris. Scott Abbott and James Wong will write the screenplay, while Agnieszka Holland and an Emmy Treme, will direct, said the Hollywood Reporter.

"Ira Levin's mesmerizing book was a groundbreaking reflection on how effective and influential a psychological thriller could be," said Quinn Taylor, executive VP movies, miniseries and international co-productions at NBC.

"We're looking forward to adapting his incredible work and bringing those indelible characters to a new generation of viewers."

The story revolves around a young married couple who move into a Paris apartment that has a haunted past.

After getting pregnant, the wife becomes increasingly suspicious that her husband and their neighbours have ulterior motives about her unborn child.
