NETFLIX ANNOUNCES ITS THIRD ORIGINAL SERIES IN ITALY

BABY INSPIRED BY THE TRUE STORY OF PARIOLI'S BABY SQUILLO, A GLIMPSE BEHIND THE ITALIAN HIGH SCHOOL CURTAIN - START OF PRODUCTION IN 2018

Rome, Italy - November 15, 2017 - Following the global launch of Suburra, the series, and after the announcement of Juventus FC docu-series, Netflix, the world's leading internet entertainment service, continues its investment in local European productions and announces today its third Italian original series, Baby.

Baby is a coming-of-age story that explores the unseen lives of Roman high schoolers. Loosely inspired by a true story, the baby squillo scandal, the series follows a group of Parioli teenagers as they defy society in their search for identity and independence against the backdrop of forbidden love, family pressures, and shared secrets.

This 8-episode drama series delves into the wide-ranging experiences of Italian teens through the bold storytelling of the new writing collective, GRAMS, made up of five young writers, Antonio Le Fosse, Eleonora Trucchi, Marco Raspanti, Giacomo Mazzariol and Re Salvador. Writers Isabella Aguilar and Giacomo Durzi will join them in bringing this vision to life.

Netflix is excited to develop new and untapped voices with a fresh approach to storytelling that will make for an authentic and unprecedented series for the service.

Baby is produced by Fabula Pictures and the start of production will be in 2018.

Erik Barmack, VP of International Originals at Netflix, says: "We are proud to continue to invest in original content in Italy, and Baby is representative of the new, edgy programming from talented producers that we cherish. We couldn't be more excited to start work on this show."
