Sky has released a teaser trailer and first look images for new horror comedy series The Baby, from the producers of Chernobyl (Sister).
Debut screenwriter Siân Robins-Grace (Sex Education) and Lucy Gaymer co-wrote the eight-part series, a darkly funny exploration of motherhood from the perspective of a woman who doesn’t want to be one.
Actor and comedian Michelle De Swarte stars as the 38-year-old Natasha, whose closest friends are all having children. Natasha is furious, but when she is unexpectedly given a baby of her own, her life implodes. As she discovers the true extent of the baby's evil nature, she is forced to resort to increasingly desperate measures to rid herself of it.
Amira Ghazalla also stars as Mrs Eaves, a 70-year-old enigma who has spent the last fifty years living out of her car and seems to pop up wherever the baby is. And Amber Grappy plays Bobbi, Natasha’s younger sister and a children’s magician who would give anything to be a parent.
The Baby will air on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV later in 2022.
