Netflix continues its international expansion with "Baby", an original Italian drama about child prostitution in Rome.

The series is loosely based on a true story, known as the Baby Squillo scandal, in which politicians and leading Italian figures including Mussolini's granddaughter were caught up in a prostitution case in 2013.
