Suits wrapped season three last night, but Patrick J. Adams won’t be missing from our TVs for long. The series will be back for its fourth season in June, and next month, he’s appearing in an NBC two-part mini-series event (i.e. extended movie) version of Rosemary’s Baby opposite Zoe Saldana (Star Trek, Avatar). For the uninitiated, the story follows an idyllic young couple whose impending parenthood is torpedoed by a deal with devil.

The NBC version of the 1967 bestseller by Ira Levin has an impressive pedigree–the Scott Abbott (Queen of the Damned) and James Wong (American Horror Story, The X-Files) penned script is directed by Agnieszka Holland (The Wire, Treme).

Here’s the official logline.

Rosemary’s Baby centers on a young married couple who escapes New York and moves to Paris with hopes of leaving their sad past behind. After a series of unfortunate events, Rosemary and Guy Woodhouse are presented with an offer they can’t refuse – an apartment at the most prestigious address in the city. Problem is, it comes with a haunted past and an immeasurable price. The supporting cast includes Jason Isaacs (Awake) and Carole Bouquet (For Your Eyes Only).
