NBC Day: Network Announces Hillary Clinton Miniseries, Remake of Rosemary's Baby and More

by at . Comments

NBC took to the stage today at the Television Critics Association summer press tour and announced a number of projects in the works. Among them:

Lane/Clinton
  • A four-hour miniseries about Hillary Clinton that will star Oscar nominee Diane Lane as the former (and future?) Presidential candidate. The role of Bill Clinton has not yet been cast.
  • A remake of Rosemary’s Baby.
  • A miniseries based on Stephen King’s The Tommyknockers.
  • A Mark Burnett-produced limited program about the ”landing of the pilgrims at Plymouth Rock,” according to NBC Chairman Robert Greenblatt.

Greenblatt also expressed frustration that The New Normal and Go On were canceled ("You have to make those really difficult calls for what you can renew at what rating") and said the following about working with Donald Trump:

“We live in a country where free speech is supported. He is in the business of creating his own headlines and we are in the business of creating ours.”
