Baby

 

Now 3 seasons

The hidden lives of Parioli teens, a dark coming of age story inspired by a 2014 real-life scandal dubbed ‘Baby squillo’.

Growing up in Rome’s “posh” neighbourhood, sixteen years olds Chiara and Ludovica live a double life: they attend a renowned private high school by day, and become underaged escorts by night. Their rich friends and respectable families suspect nothing, in spite of the increasingly reckless actions carried out by the two girls.

Started as a game, nothing more than a fast way to gain easy money, soon the prostitution ring – led by sketchy people – becomes a dark hole for Chiara and Ludovica, threatening to swallow their lives. The only path to salvation is through love. But, as every teenager can tell you, at that age it can be easier to hate themselves, instead taking care of each other. The struggle is real, not just for Chiara and Ludovica but for each one of the main characters.

 

This series is inspired by the real-life scandal «Baby Squillo» that took place in Italy in 2014.

Baby 2 was the 5th most watched series on Netflix Italy in 2019
