Video: Prime Video Reveals Official Trailer for Social Media Thriller “Chloe”
The six-episode series will launch June 24 on Prime Video in the U.S. and more than 240 countries and territories worldwide, after premiering to critical acclaim in the UK on BBC One and BBC iPlayer earlier this year.

Prime Video Reveals Official Trailer for Social Media Thriller “Chloe”

All six episodes of the limited series will premiere June 24 on Prime Video

CULVER CITY, California – May 24, 2022 – Today, Prime Video revealed the official trailer for the much-anticipated psychological thriller Chloe, created by Alice Seabright (writer/director, Sex Education) and starring Erin Doherty (The Crown). The six-episode series will launch June 24 on Prime Video in the U.S. and more than 240 countries and territories worldwide, after premiering to critical acclaim in the UK on BBC One and BBC iPlayer earlier this year.

Chloe follows Becky Green (Doherty), who is obsessed with stalking her childhood friend Chloe Fairbourne’s (Poppy Gilbert) perfectly curated social media presence. Chloe’s charmed life, adoring husband, and circle of high-achieving friends are always just a click away, and Becky can’t resist peering into a world that contrasts so starkly with her own, as she cares for her mother, who has early onset dementia. When Chloe suddenly dies, Becky assumes a new identity and infiltrates the enviable lives of Chloe’s closest friends to find out what happened to her. 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 she discovers Chloe’s real life had not been nearly as perfect as it was portrayed online. As Becky gets deeper into her con, and Chloe’s inner circle, she risks losing herself completely in the game she is playing.

In addition to Doherty and Gilbert, the series features Billy Howle (The Serpent) as Elliot, Pippa Bennett-Warner (Gangs of London) as Livia, Jack Farthing (Poldark) as Richard, and Brandon Micheal Hall (Search Party) as Josh.

Chloe 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. It is created, written, and directed by Alice Seabright, who also serves as an executive producer. The series producer is Joanna Crow (Giri/Haji) and the second block director is Amanda Boyle (Skins). Executive producers are Tally Garner (Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell) and Morven Reid (Pure) for Mam Tor Productions, and Ben Irving for the BBC. Banijay Rights is the international distributor for Chloe, with the business’ Matt Creasey, EVP Sales and Acquisitions, serving as broker of the exclusive worldwide SVOD deal with Prime Video.

Tayshia Adams, best known simply by the mononym Tayshia, is a television host and multimedia personality.

Tayshia made her TV debut on The Bachelor in 2019, winning over the nation with her infectious energy and instantly becoming a fan-favorite, which led her to return to television that same year on the sixth season of Bachelor in Paradise. Tayshia’s captivating presence led to fan-organized social campaigns petitioning for Tayshia to become the franchise’s next lead. The fans were heard, and in the fall of 2020, Tayshia became the inspiring, groundbreaking star of The Bachelorette’s sixteenth season, in which she was the first biracial lead in the franchise’s history. In May 2021, Tayshia took home the MTV Movie & TV Award: Unscripted for “Best Dating Show” on behalf of her season, which was also nominated for a People’s Choice Award.

It was during Tayshia’s role as lead when she realized that the role of host, and behind the scenes work that goes into it, was the most fascinating and fitting position for her. Following her season, Tayshia went on to co-host the next two seasons of The Bachelorette. Since then, Tayshia has been a guest host on shows including Entertainment Tonight and E! Daily Pop, and now, she is the host of this year’s MTV Movie & TV Awards: Unscripted. Outside of television, Tayshia has starred in nationwide commercials and campaigns for major car manufactures, fashion designers, beauty brands and athletic companies. Tayshia has graced the spreads of magazines including Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, Women’s Health and more.

The proud daughter of her African American father Desmond and Mexican mother Rosario, Tayshia feels a deep connection to both sides of her family’s roots and heritage. In her free time, Tayshia loves to travel and is passionate about fashion, beauty, interior design, her faith, volunteering, and fitness. Running, in particular, has been a pastime of hers since she was young and is now a major part of her active lifestyle. Tayshia completed the New York City Marathon in 2021 and ran in support of the non-profit humanitarian organization World Vision, for which she helped raise sponsorships for over 150 children in Kenya and Honduras. She also enjoys volunteering at her local food bank weekly with the charity Feeding America.

A 2012 Concordia University Irvine graduate and former phlebotomist before beginning her journey in television, Tayshia is bicoastal and spends her time between Southern California and New York City.

The filmmaking pair said of the acquisition, “HBO Max has been a dream platform for us since we first started writing this deeply personal story. To see it come to fruition and be available to U.S. audiences is everything we could have asked for. We are grateful to the teams at OneFifty and HBO Max who connected with our vision and are championing it. To release the film ahead of Father’s Day is perfect timing.”
