Zoe Saldana is starring in the role made famous by Mia Farrow in the NBC remake of the classic 1968 Roman Polanski film. The miniseries has just released its first poster, with the actress contemplating what exactly is being born, along with 2 images.

NBC’s four-hour miniseries Rosemary’s Baby, is an adaptation of the 1967 best-selling suspense novel by Ira Levin. Zoe Saldana will play Rosemary, the iconic young wife and would-be mother who, with her husband Guy (Suits star Patrick J. Adams), move next door to a satanic coven. After finally getting pregnant, she becomes increasingly suspicious that both her husband and their mysterious neighbors have ulterior motives about the future of her child. The NBC miniseries shifts the story to Paris, which differs from the novel and the 1968 film version, which were set in New York. In the poster, the Eiffel Tower can be seen in the background

Acclaimed director Agnieszka Holland, who has been nominated for both an Oscar (Europa, Europa) and an Emmy Award (Treme), will direct. Scott Abbott (Introducing Dorothy Dandridge, Winchell) and James Wong (American Horror Story) wrote the screenplay.

Rosemary’s Baby is slated to premiere in May on NBC.
