Rosemary's new baby

ABC is producing a new mini series based on the classic horror.

Variety reports that the network has acquired the rights to novels Rosemary's Baby and the sequel, Son of Rosemary, both written by Ira Levin.

The novel tells the everyday story of a woman who becomes pregnant with Satan's child. The first novel was famously adapted for the cinema by Roman Polanski with Mia Farrow as Rosemary.

Executive producer Barbara Leibermen promises that the four-hour mini series will stay faithful to the books.

"[Rosemary's Baby] is the seminal psychological horror film of all time, and I think it will make a huge television event," Lieberman said. "The title is familiar to younger audiences, but they haven't necessarily seen [it]."
