The Baby is described as a “darkly funny, raw examination of motherhood, from the perspective of a woman who doesn’t want to be one.” It is co-written and executive produced by Siân Robins-Grace, who serves as a co-creator with producer Lucy Gaymer.
Check out The Baby trailer below:
“It centers around 38-year-old Natasha, who is furious that her closest friends are all having babies,” reads the synopsis. “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.”
