Set in Bristol and created by Alice Seabright (writer, director, Sex Education) the six one hour episodes will premiere in 2022 on BBC One and BBC iPlayer in the UK and will be available on Prime Video in the U.S. and more than 240 countries and territories worldwide.
Starring Erin Doherty (The Crown), the thriller follows Becky Green (Doherty) 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.
The newly released pictures show Becky and her alter ego, Sasha, as she manufactures situations in order to meet Livia (Pippa Bennett-Warner) and Chloe's other friends, to get to the truth of what really happened.
Chloe (6x60') is a co-production between BBC One, Mam Tor Productions and Amazon Studios, and was commissioned by Piers Wenger, Director of BBC Drama and Charlotte Moore, BBC Chief Content Officer.
