Rosemary's Baby

Patrick J. Adams (Suits) has joined the cast of NBC’s four hour Rosemary’s Baby miniseries as the male lead. Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter) meanwhile will star as warlock/coven-leader Roman Castevet, a character originally played by Sidney Blackmer in Roman Polanski’s 1968 adaptation of the 1967 best-selling suspense novel by Ira Levin.

Adams will take on the role of Rosemary Woodhouse’s (Zoe Saldana) husband, Guy. The series focuses on the couple as they move into a Paris apartment that has a darkly-storied past. After finally getting pregnant, Rosemary becomes increasingly suspicious that both her husband and their mysterious neighbours have ulterior motives about the future of her child. Guy was originally played by John Cassavetes.

Adams has become an extremely recognisable face thanks to his role in Suits, while the series marks a return to television for Issacs as he previously starred in Awake for NBC. Academy Award-nominated director Agnieszka Holland (Europa, Europa) is set to direct, and Scott Abbott (Introducing Dorothy Dandridge) and James Wong (American Horror Story) are penning the screenplay.
