We know that Erin Doherty (The Crown), Billy Howle (The Serpent), Pippa Bennett-Warner (Gangs of London), Jack Farthing (Poldark), Poppy Gilbert (Stay Close), Akshay Khanna (Grace), Brandon Michael Hall (Search Party), and newcomer Alexander Eliot will all be tangled up in this brand-new mystery.

What's the plot? 

Chloe is described as "a mystery about obsession, deceit, identity and grief". It follows Becky (Erin Doherty) a young woman who still lives with her mum. She’s working as a temp and is living her life through the apparently flawless lives of social media influencers. In particular, Becky has become obsessed with an Instagram account owned by Chloe (Poppy Gilbert). 

When her idol suddenly passes away, Becky adopts a new identity as “Sasha” so she can infiltrate Chloe’s circle of friends and uncover what happened to the social media starlet. As her "Sasha" alter-ego, Becky becomes a larger-than-life heroine living a far more exciting life than her actual one. Will Becky lose herself completely in the game she’s playing? Only time will tell...

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."

The show is set to take full advantage of its Bristol setting, as the show will feature artwork from local artists from the region and an original score from Will Gregory (one half of electronic music dup, Goldfrapp).
