Apple premiered its limited drama series “Truth Be Told” at The Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Los Angeles, California, on Monday night.
Set to debut on Apple TV+ next month, the show stars Octavia Spencer in the role of Poppy Parnell, a podcaster who aims to reopen a murder case that she was involved in solving 18 years earlier that put Warren Cave (played by Aaron Paul) behind bars.
Spencer’s character is unsure if she made a mistake when she helped put Paul’s character (Warren Cave) in prison, and with her podcast, she tries to discover the truth and determine whether Cave was wrongfully convicted.
Based on the novel by Kathleen Barber, “Truth Be Told” is said to offer a unique glimpse into America’s obsession with true crime podcasts and challenges its viewers to consider the consequences when the pursuit of justice is placed on a public stage.
Beginning December 6, the first three episodes of “Truth Be Told” will be available to watch on Apple TV+ in over 100 countries and regions around the world. New episodes will continue to roll out weekly, every Friday. You can watch the trailer here.
Apple TV+ costs $4.99 per month with a family of six able to watch for that price point. Apple is also providing customers who purchase an Apple TV, Mac, iPad, or iPhone with a free one-year subscription.
