Chloe – The Masks of Truth (Original Series) – released June 24
Chloe follows Becky Green (Erin Doherty), who has long been observing Chloe Fairbourne (Poppy Gilbert) through her perfect social media images. Chloe’s enchanted life, adoring husband and successful circle of friends are always just a click away, and Becky can’t resist peeking into a world that contrasts so starkly with hers, where she cares for her mother, that has an early onset of dementia, in their small seaside apartment on the outskirts of Bristol, England. When Chloe suddenly dies, Becky takes on 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 and transgressive heroine, a popular and well connected “someone” with life and loves that are far more exciting and compelling than the “nobody” who is like Becky. However, the fiction soon darkens and confuses reality and Becky risks getting completely lost in the game she is playing.
