Apple shared a “first look featurette” of upcoming Apple TV+ show “Truth Be Told,” which stars Octavia Spencer and Aaron Paul. 

The show focuses on podcaster Poppy Parnell (Spencer) who is trying to reopen a murder case that she was involved in solving 18 years earlier, which put Warren Cave (Paul) behind bars.
