Apple today shared a new full length trailer for its upcoming series “Truth Be Told” starring Octavia Spencer and Aaron Paul. Spencer, known for her former roles in movies like “The Shape of Water” and “Hidden Figures,” plays podcaster Poppy Parnell who aims to reopen a murder case that she was involved in solving 18 years earlier, putting Warren Cave, played by Aaron Paul (“Breaking Bad”), behind bars.
