The Baby is a darkly funny, raw examination of motherhood, from the perspective of a woman who doesn’t want to be one.
Michelle De Swarte (The Duchess) stars as 38-year-old Natasha, who is furious that her closest friends are all having babies. But when she is unexpectedly landed with a baby of her own, her life dramatically implodes.
Controlling, manipulative but incredibly cute, the baby twists Natasha’s life into a surreal horror show.
As she discovers the true extent of the Baby’s deadly nature, Natasha makes increasingly desperate attempts to get rid of it. She doesn’t want a baby. But the baby definitely wants her.
The eight-episode series is a co-production between Sky Studios and HBO, produced by SISTER (Chernobyl, Landscapers) and Proverbial Pictures.
The Baby will air on Sky Atlantic and streaming service NOW in summer 2022.
