Despite the seemingly lack of necessity in remaking Roman Polanksi’s already-perfect horror/ black comedy adaptation of Ira Levin’s novel, Rosemary’s Baby, NBC has decided that the story should—nay, needs—to be told in four-part TV miniseries form. So, instead of seeing Mia Farrow and John Cassavetes move into their new apartment building that may or may not be the home of a Satan-worshipping cult, we now have Zoe Saldana and Patrick J. Adams doing the same, except in Paris rather than New York.
And, of course, while there, Rosemary gets pregnant with the titular child whose old man happens not to be Guy, but… oh, seriously do we even have to go into a plot breakdown? The classic film has been available for nearly 50 years. It’s the Devil. The kid’s dad is the Devil.
And so in the new teaser, we see Saldana’s Rosemary sporting a baby bump, then a disconcerting nosebleed, and then an even more disconcerting short-hair wig that’s almost as laughable as a Satan-baby running around an apartment run by a cult of elderly Devil-nuts. Anyway, check it out:
