HBO has today announced the premiere date for its upcoming original horror comedy series The Baby starring Michelle De Swarte.

The 8-episode season will launch on Sunday, April 24 at 10:30/9:30c.

38-year-old Natasha (De Swarte) 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.
