Agnieszka Holland to direct NBC's Rosemary's Baby mini-series

When NBC previously announced they were developing a mini-series based on Roman Polanski 's ROSEMARY'S BABY, we had no idea what to expect from it. Was it going to be a longer, self-contained series like AMERICAN HORROR STORY or was it going to be the traditional, two night network mini that was popular in the 1980s and early 1990s.

The sequel to The Bible is coming to NBC

I couldn't think of a witty joke title for the sequel to History's mini-series THE BIBLE. I considered BIBLE 2: CHRISTIAN BOOGALOO, BIBLE 2: JUDGEMENT DAY, or even THE RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD. But, all of those are a little offensive so we will go with the real title: A.D.: BEYOND THE BIBLE. The Mark Burnett-produced mini-series had huge ratings (13 million viewers) and NBC sorely...
