In this first (but only for the calendar) summer weekend Prime Video shoots the fireworks, incoming and unfortunately also outgoing. Comedy is one of the upcoming films My Fake Boyfriendwhile expiring there is a cult title – in every sense – like Genesis Code. For the TV series, two new titles: the thriller Chloe – The Masks of Truth is the news of the week, but we start to warn you in time about a painful loss: Mad Menwhich will be deleted from the Prime Video catalog after July 2nd.
My fake boyfriend (Original film) – release date 24 June
Andrew (Keiynan Lonsdale) has a big problem: he can’t stay away from the toxic boyfriend who just dumped him. His nosy friends (Dylan Sprouse and Sarah Hyland) decide to help him by creating “Cristiano”, a perfect fake social media boyfriend.
Problem solved, right? Wrong! As Cristiano goes viral and becomes world famous, in real life Andrew meets his dream boy, Rafi, a charming restaurant owner. Andrew will have to find a way to end the other fake story, escape the jealous ex and win Rafi’s heart in this fun and hilarious comedy about some of the crazy things we do for love.
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.
Chloe is a 6-episode, 60-minute series and is a co-production between BBC One, Mam Tor Productions and Amazon Studios. The series was created, written and directed by Alice Seabright, who is also its executive producer. Producer of the series is Joanna Crow (Giri / Haji) and the director of the second block 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.
