Trailers from Apple TV+ shows have been pretty underwhelming so far. Now, a good trailer does not mean a good show nor does a bad one mean a bad show, and I fully intend on diving into everything they offer to decide for myself, but this trailer for Truth Be Told is probably their best trailer yet.
I was worried the podcast angle would be a little hokey, but it doesn’t come across that way in the trailer. Very much feels like Serial meets Sharp Objects, starring Octavia Spencer, and I dig all of those things.
Apple TV+ launches Nov 1, and Truth Be Told will follow it up a month later on Dec 6, 2019.
