The BBC just released more details about their new drama series, Chloe, and we're getting major Black Mirror vibes. The six part series, which was written by Sex Education director Alice Seabright, is described as "a mystery about obsession, deceit, identity and grief" (via BBC). Here's everything we know about the series so far.

What is Chloe about?

The official synopsis says: "Still living with her mum and working as a temp, Becky compares herself to the picture-perfect lives on Instagram, compulsively returning to one account: Chloe's."

"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, and infiltrate Chloe's group of close-knit friends."

"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 pretence soon obscures and conflates reality, and Becky risks losing herself completely in the game she is playing."

Who is starring in Chloe?

The Crown's Erin Doherty stars as Becky/Sasha, alongside Poppy Gilbert (Stay Close) as Chloe, and Pippa Bennett-Warner (Gangs of London) as Livia.

Other cast members include Billy Howle (The Serpent), Jack Farthing (Poldark), Akshay Khanna (Grace), Brandon Micheal Hall (Search Party) and newcomer Alexander Eliot.

Is there a trailer for Chloe?

There isn't a trailer for Chloe at the moment, but the BBC has released a teaser pic of the cast (above) to get us all excited.

When will Chloe be released?

We don't have an official release date for the series yet, but we do know they've started filming, which hopefully means it'll be released later this year. The series will air on BBC One, and will be available on BBC iPlayer in the UK and on Amazon Prime internationally.
