    Polish director Agnieszka Holland will direct the remake of "Rosemary's Baby."

"Rosemary's Baby," the classic novel and film about a woman carrying Satan's baby, is getting a modern updating and a change of scenery.
NBC announced Tuesday it was green-lighting a four-hour miniseries based on Ira Levin's novel, which also served as the basis for Roman Polanski's 1968 film starring Mia Farrow.
The new miniseries will take place in Paris, with a young married couple moving into an apartment with a creepy history. Pretty soon, the wife is pregnant, her husband and the neighbors are acting funny, and there's a growing suspicion that when the baby arrives, it'll have cloven hooves and a pair of horns.
Oscar-nominee Agnieszka Holland will direct the miniseries, which is being written by Scott Abbott and James Wong. Casting is beginning immediately with a January start date for production in Paris.
Both Levin's original novel and Polanski's film were set in New York. Ruth Gordon, who played one of the neighbors in the film, won a supporting actress Oscar for the role.
The announcement of the miniseries, something that has become exceedingly rare on network TV these days, follows NBC's success with resurrecting "The Sound of Music."
