The Crown‘s Erin Doherty and Gangs of London‘s Pippa Bennett-Warner will star in Alice Seabright’s new show.
Back in April, we brought you news that Chloe, a psychological thriller from Sex Education creator Alice Seabright had begun filming. Now the BBC and Amazon studios have released some early images of the show.
The drama stars Erin Doherty, Billy Howle (The Serpent), Pippa Bennett-Warner and Jack Farthing (Poldark). It also includes Poppy Gilbert (Stay Close), Akshay Khanna (Grace), Brandon Micheal Hall (Search Party) and newcomer Alexander Eliot.
Here’s the synopsis:
Starring Erin Doherty, the thriller follows Becky Green who has been watching Chloe Fairbourne (Poppy Gilbert) via her perfect social media images for some time; Chloe’s charmed life, adoring husband and circle of high-achieving friends are always just a click away.
Becky can’t resist watching a life that contrasts so starkly with her own; a life spent caring for her mother, who has early-onset dementia, in their small seaside flat on the outskirts of Bristol.
When Chloe dies suddenly, Becky assumes a new identity and infiltrates the enviable lives of Chloe’s closest friends to find out what happened to her.
Set in Bristol, Chloe‘s six one-hour episodes will premiere in 2022 on BBC One and BBC iPlayer in the UK and Prime Video worldwide.
The show is a co-production between BBC One, Mam Tor Productions and Amazon Studios. It is created, written, and directed by Alice Seabright who also serves as an executive producer.
The series producer is Joanna Crow and second block director is Amanda Boyle. Executive producers are Tally Garner and Morven Reid for Mam Tor Productions, and Ben Irving for the BBC.
Full details and further images are here, and naturally, we’ll update when there’s a trailer or start date.
