Octavia Spencer and Gabrielle Union are doing whatever they can to bring the criminals behind the disappearances of Black girls to justice in the latest clip from Apple TV+’s Truth Be Told.
In the Feb. 17 episode, “Freedom Is Never Given; It Is Won,” Spencer’s character Poppy tells Markus (Mekhi Phifer) putting her career on the line with, as the description calls it, “a bold tactic.” Meanwhile, Shreve (Ron Cephas Jones) confronts a politician, which leads to an arrest. In the clip below, Poppy and Eva (Union) get a call from a person who has important information on a case.
Along with Spencer, Truth Be Told also stars Gabrielle Union, Mekhi Phifer, Ron Cephas Jones, Merle Dandridge, David Lyons, Tracie Thoms, Mychala Faith Lee, Haneefah Wood and Tami Roman. Spencer also executive produces.
This season follows Spencer and Union as their characters work to bring justice to the families of missing Black girls. According to the description:
Based on the novel “While You Were Sleeping” by Kathleen Barber, “Truth Be Told” offers a unique glimpse into America’s obsession with true crime podcasts and challenges its viewers to consider the consequences when the pursuit of justice is placed on a public stage. In season three, Poppy (Spencer), frustrated by the lack of media attention for several young missing Black girls, teams with an unorthodox principal (Union) to keep the victims’ names in the public eye while chasing down leads to a suspected sex trafficking ring that may have ensnared them.
