Amazon Studios has announced that it will co-produce new BBC psychological thriller Chloe.
The six-part series centers on Becky, who becomes obsessed with the death of her estranged friend Chloe. Becky assumes a new identity to infiltrate the enviable lives of Chloe’s closest friends as she attempts to establish what happened.
Through her alter-ego Sasha, Becky becomes a powerful, transgressive heroine; a popular, well-connected “someone” with a life, and loves, that are far more exciting and addictive than the “no one” she is as Becky. However, the pretense soon obscures and conflates reality, and Becky risks losing herself completely.
Bennett-Warner (Gangs of London) plays Livia and stars alongside lead Erin Doherty (The Crown) as Becky, Billy Howle (The Serpent) as Elliot, Jack Farthing (Poldark) as Richard, Poppy Gilbert (Stay Close) as Chloe, Akshay Khanna (Grace), Brandon Micheal Hall (Search Party), and newcomer Alexander Eliot.
Chloe is produced by Mam Tor Productions, run by former Cuba Pictures cofounder Tally Garner, the series was originally announced by the BBC in February 2020 and is created and written by Sex Education director Alice Seabright.
As well as writing, Seabright directs and serves as an executive producer alongside Garner and Morven Reid (Pure) for Mam Tor Productions, and Ben Irving for the BBC. The series producer is Joanna Crow (Giri/Haji) and the second block director is Amanda Boyle (Skins). The score is composed by Will Gregory (Goldfrapp) featuring Adrian Utley (Portishead) and Alison Goldfrapp. Banijay Rights is distributing. The series begins production in Bristol.
