NBC has a number of new miniseries in the works, including two new horror features.

The Network recently unveiled plans to re-imagine Rosemary’s Baby, along with Stephen King’s Tommyknockers.

According NBC, Rosemary’s Baby is set to be a four-hour updated retelling of the novel by Ira Levin (later adapted as a feature film about devil worship). In the new version, the couple lives in Paris where the thriller unfolds.

Scott Abbott (Introducing Dorothy Dandridge, Winchel) will serve as writer on Rosemary’s Baby, with executive producers Joshua Maurer, David Stern, Perri Kipperman and Alix Witlin at the helm.

Stephen King’s Tommyknockers is based on the 1987 horror novel of the same name and focuses on the residents of a small Maine town who believe an alien spacecraft that has landed nearby.

Frank Konigsberg and Larry Sanitsky will executive produce. Yves Simoneau (Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee) is attached to direct.
