* ROSEMARY'S BABY. 9 p.m. Sunday and Thursday, NBC10.
Because nothing says Mother's Day like a miniseries that chronicles the pregnancy from Hell? This set-in-Paris two-parter, directed by Agnieszka Holland and starring Zoe Saldana ("Avatar") as the iconic Rosemary, isn't going to make anyone forget the 1968 Roman Polanski classic. But it's a scary bit of filmmaking. It may even have its father's eyes.
* IN THE FLESH. 10 p.m. Saturday, BBC America.
Season 2 of the series that looks at the conflict between the living and the walking dead from the angle of Partially Deceased Syndrome sufferers finds teenager Kieren Walker (Luke Newberry) caught between extreme factions. Newberry is endearing in a role that reminds us even zombies have mothers.
* PENNY DREADFUL. 10 p.m. Sunday, Showtime.
And the horror continues. There's nothing motherly about this new series, which is set in Victorian London and digs up some old favorites - Frankenstein, Dorian Gray, Dracula - and throws them into the mix with the likes of Jack the Ripper. Definitely not for the squeamish, but it does boast a killer cast, including Timothy Dalton, Eva Green and Josh Hartnett.
* THE GOLDEN GIRLS, 7 p.m. Sunday, TV Land.
Not every mother wants a tasteful arrangement of blood-spattered roses - go figure - so TV Land's plucked six episodes of "The Golden Girls," starting with one in which the women reflect on past Mother's Days while waiting for their children to call.
