After releasing a story featurette on 'SEE' just a few days ago, Apple has debuted a new first-look featurette showcasing its upcoming Apple TV Plus drama 'Truth Be Told' which stars Octavia Spencer and Aaron Paul.

The video introduces us to the actors and crew behind the series and they collectively give us a background on the story and a preview of what to expect from the show. The series tells the story of Poppy Parnell (Octavia Spencer) who, through the medium of podcasting, reopens a murder case that may have wrongly convicted Warren Cave (Aaron Paul).

Apple describes 'Truth Be Told' as a limited series in the video description, so we can make the assumption that there will only be one season:

Her investigation navigates urgent concerns about privacy, media, and race.Truth Be Told is created by Nichelle Tramble Spellman and stars Octavia Spencer, Aaron Paul, Lizzy Caplan, Elizabeth Perkins, Michael Beach, Mekhi Phifer, Tracie Thoms, Haneefah Wood, and Ron Cephas Jones.

'Truth Be Told' (opens in new tab) is set to premiere on Apple TV+ on December 6, about a week after its first thriller, 'Servant' (opens in new tab), debuts to the world on Thanksgiving. Apple TV+ is available now and costs $4.99 per month for up to six users when using Family Sharing.
