Take a look at the trailer Netflix has released for upcoming series Baby.
Set in Rome, Baby follows the lives – to be clear, the hidden lives – of teenagers harbouring big secrets and unseen lifestyles. The series is loosely based on a real-life Italian teen prostitution case, in which two girls – aged 14 and 15 at the time – from Rome’s upscale Parioli neighborhood worked out of an apartment, earning up to 600 euro a day, while a 30-year-old man organised appointments. The scandal erupted following a report given to the police by the mother of the 14-year-old, who said she was suspicious as to how her daughter was earning so much cash and the “strange” text messages she would receive.
Netflix is continuing their international productions at an increasing rate, and with shows like Spanish series Elite enjoying a solid bit of buzz and 13 Reasons Why gathering a lot of attention, troubled teens clearly remains an area of intrigue for viewers. We’ll see what manner of trouble these kids get up to when Baby, starring Benedetta Porcarolia and Alice Pagani as the two leads girls, hits Netflix on November 30.
Netflix’s official synopsis for Baby:
Baby is a coming-of-age story that explores the unseen lives of Roman teenagers. Loosely inspired by Rome teen prostitution scandal, the series follows a group of teenagers as they defy society in their search for identity and independence against the backdrop of forbidden love, family pressures, and shared secrets.
