NBC set to begin shooting for mini-series based on Ira Levin 1967 horror novel brought to big screen by Roman Polanski

• News: Michael Bay plans The Birds remake

Rosemary's Baby is poised to wail demonically again – on the small screen. The Us network NBC is planning a television mini-series based on Ira Levin's eponymous horror novel, published in 1967 and adapted for Roman Polanski's 1968 chiller, according to Slash Film.

The network, which has broadcast series based on Hannibal Lecter and Dracula, has set The Wire's Agnieszka Holland to direct the four-part serial.

The TV version of Rosemary's Baby is reportedly based on Levin's bestselling book, rather than Polanski's film, about a young woman facing satanic horrors in a Manhattan apartment block. The action will be transferred from New York to Paris by the screenwriters Scott Abbott (Introducing Dorothy Dandridge) and James Wong (American Horror Story).
