Baby is an Italian teen drama web television series created for Netflix. The first season debuted on 30 November 2018. The series follows students at an elite high school in Rome who engage in prostitution. It is loosely based on the story of two high school girls in Rome involved in an underage prostitution ring in 2014.
Set in an elite high school in Rome, Baby follows Chiara (Benedetta Porcaroli), a young, rich woman who is disenchanted with her privileged and too normal life. All of that changes when Chiara meets Ludovica (Alice Pagani), an impulsive troublemaker who's secretly in need of money. Partially due to desperation, partially due to boredom, Ludovica draws Chiara into the world of underage prostitution, and it's as bad of an idea as it sounds. Ludovica becomes involved with Fiore, a young man who is a part of the prostitution and cares very deeply for her, to the point where he becomes obsessed with her. Chiara pursues a relationship with Damiano, the new kid and son of a senator while hiding her secret life.
