Netflix's 'Baby' Is Based on a Real-Life Elite Italian High School Scandal


Season 2 of Netflix's controversial Italian series Baby dropped on Oct. 18, and it's quite possibly filled with more scandals than Season 1. The show centers on a group of teenage girls at an elite Italian private high school who engage in prostitution as a means to get money and access to luxury goods that they otherwise couldn't afford. 

The plot mostly focuses on two teenage girls: Ludovica (Alice Pagani) and Chiara (Benedetta Porcaroli) who are best-friends-turned-prostitutes. The National Center on Sexual Exploitation criticized the show when the first season debuted in November of 2018, saying that Baby glamorized a scandal that rocked Italy.
