Truth Be Told
Soon to be a major TV series from Apple TV+ produced by Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine! Starring Oscar winner Octavia Spencer and Aaron Paul.
Truth Be Told - formerly titled Are You Sleeping - is an addictive psychological thriller about a hit podcast that reopens a murder case and threatens to unravel the carefully constructed life of the victim’s daughter.
The only thing more dangerous than a lie . . . is the truth.
Josie Buhrman has spent the last ten years trying to escape her family. Following her father’s murder thirteen years before, her mother ran away to join a cult and her twin sister betrayed her in an unimaginable way, leaving Josie alone.
Now, Josie finally has a happy new life in New York with her fiancé, Caleb. The only problem is that she has lied to Caleb about every detail of her past – starting with her last name.
When investigative reporter Poppy Parnell re-examines her father's case on her hit podcast Josie’s world begins to unravel and then the unexpected death of her mother forces Josie to return home.
Now she must confront the secrets from her past – and the lies on which she has staked her future.
