The first time that the title “Rosemary’s Baby” was mentioned was through the movie by the same name in 1968 starring Mia Farrow. On Sunday, May 11, 2014 (Mother’s Day), Zoe Saldana will be bringing the character of Rosemary Woodhouse to NBC.
The story line is centered around a couple who desire to have a baby, and after moving into an apartment occupied by evil forces, the woman becomes pregnant by the devil, and births a satanic baby. According to the website IMDB, a young couple move into a new apartment, only to be surrounded by peculiar neighbors and occurrences. When the wife becomes mysteriously pregnant, paranoia over the safety of her unborn child begins controlling her life.

In most fairytales, books, movies etc., there is good (the antagonist) and evil (the protagonist). What are you looking for?
