Filming has started in Bristol on Chloe, an original psychological thriller, from Mam Tor Productions for BBC One and Amazon Studios. The 6×60’ episodes will premiere on BBC One and BBC iPlayer in the UK, and will be available on Amazon Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide
Created and written by Alice Seabright (director of Sex Education), Chloe stars Erin Doherty (The Crown), Billy Howle (The Serpent), Pippa Bennett-Warner (Gangs Of London) and Jack Farthing (Poldark). It also includes Poppy Gilbert (Stay Close), Akshay Khanna (Grace), Brandon Micheal Hall (Search Party) and newcomer Alexander Eliot.
Still living with her mum and working as a temp, Becky (Doherty) compares herself to the picture-perfect lives on Instagram, compulsively returning to one account: Chloe’s (Gilbert). Becky obsessively watches her seemingly flawless life through social media. But when Chloe dies suddenly, Becky’s need to find out how and why leads her to assume a new identity and engineer a ‘chance’ meeting with Chloe’s best friend, Livia (Bennett-Warner), and infiltrate Chloe’s group of close-knit friends.
Alice Seabright says: “Becky is a complex, courageous heroine and there is no one better to play her than Erin. All these characters have been a dream to write, and it now feels like they’ve found their soulmates in our amazing cast. I can’t wait to start bringing the show to life with them, and with our wonderful crew”
