Now available to stream on Apple TV+ are the first three episodes of the Apple Original true-crime drama series “Truth Be Told.”

Joe Rossignol for MacRumors:

New evidence compels true-crime podcaster Poppy Parnell, played by Octavia Spencer, to reopen a murder case that made her a media sensation. “Breaking Bad” star Aaron Paul plays the man she may have wrongfully put behind bars. The series is based on the novel “Are You Sleeping” by Kathleen Barber.

Apple has also released the eighth episodes of “The Morning Show,” “See,” and “For All Mankind,” as well as the fourth episode of “Servant.”

MacDailyNews Take: Truth Be Told one looks great. We’ll be watching!

  1. Obvious “diversity” casting. No thanks. The show will be “woke,” therefore lame, and will fail to draw a sufficient audience. Recent object lessons include woke Charlie’s Angels flop and woke Terminator flop contrasted with the successes of non-woke Joker and non-woke Ford vs. Ferrari. As it turns out, the rest of the world doesn’t hate White guys. Only envious self-loathing degenerate liberals do. Shocker!

    1. My god – what the hell is “diversity” casting….you mean when a show ends up having a diverse cast? Do you find there is something wrong with a diverse cast? How about watch the show and provide a more well-informed opinion based on the content rather than this worthless dribble you’re spewing.

      1. I’m afraid I cannot remedy your ignorance. Your sanctimony and emotionalism at having encountered a world view contrary to your own tells me all I need to know about your intellectual maturity. Enjoy your awesome woke-ness!

  2. So far I LOVE Apple’s choices. Not sure why the critics have been lukewarm. I have every pay channel and Netflix and Amazon and I end up watching AppleTV+ most of the time. Just started watching Servant last night!

  3. I’ve been enjoying SEE and FAMankimd. Never started Morning Show, Servant isn’t my thing, probably not Truth either. Will they ever open up a library? Maybe not since it would compete with their iTunes sales? Will we need an Apple TV++ at an extra cost to watch some other shows? BTW, the Apple TV iPhone app is an absolute turd. It shows a million shows that aren’t on offer and are from services I don’t subscribe to. How is that helpful?
