Black Women are Heating Up TV


First came Kerry Washington and her breakout success with SCANDAL.  Then Gabrielle Union getting rave reviews for her series BEING MARY JANE. This week “Saturday Night Live” announced it’s new Black female cast member along with two Black female writers.

And now, Zoe Saldana has been hired to star in NBC’s four-hour miniseries remake of the classic 1968 horror film, Rosemary’s Baby. Saldana will play Rosemary, the iconic young wife and would-be mother who, with her husband, moves into a Paris apartment building that has a dark, storied past. 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.

“Zoe has proven that she is one of our most gifted actresses and we think she has the perfect combination of spirit and gravitas to take on the title role from Ira Levin’s infamous novel,” said Quinn Taylor, Executive Vice President, Movies, Miniseries and International Co-Productions, NBC Entertainment. “With Zoe leading the cast under the direction, this reimagined event mini-series is off to a great start.”
