HBO/Sky’s brand new series, The Baby, has a new trailer to give you a taste of what’s to come.
The show debuts Sunday, April 24 at 10:30 p.m. on HBO and will be available to stream on HBO Max.
The horror-comedy, from creators Siân Robins-Grace and Lucy Gaymer, and is a co-production between HBO and Sky. The series is also produced by SISTER and Proverbial Pictures. It is described as “a dark exploration of motherhood from the perspective of a woman who never wanted to be one.”
Here’s an official description of the series: Michelle De Swarte (“The Duchess”) stars as 38-year-old Natasha, who is furious that her closest friends are all having babies. 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.
The series ensemble cast includes:
Amira Ghazalla as Mrs. Eaves, the 70-year-old enigma who has spent the last fifty years living out of her car and seems to be everywhere the Baby is, and Amber Grappy as Bobbi, Natasha’s younger sister, a children’s magician who would love nothing more than to be a parent, to give love and to receive it.
It also stars Patrice Naiambana (Spectre) as Natasha’s father Lyle, Sinéad Cusack (Marcella) as her mother Barbara. Shvorne Marks (Endeavour) as Mags, Isy Suttie (Peep Show) as Rita, Tanya Reynolds (Sex Education) as Helen, Seyan Sarvan (It’s a Sin) as Nour, Karl Davies (The Tower) as Jack, and Divian Ladwa (Ant-Man and the Wasp) as Fooze.
