Truth Be Told, also starring Octavia Spencer and Lizzy Caplan, is a new limited series set for release Dec. 6 on Apple TV+. The show centers on podcaster Poppy Parnell (Spencer) as she works toward getting a controversial murder case re-opened. Paul plays Warren Cave, a man who may have been put behind bars by mistake.
Elizabeth Perkins, Michael Beach, Mekhi Phifer, Tracie Thoms, Haneefah Wood and Ron Cephas Jones also star in the Nichelle Tramble Spellman-created series that's among a slate of originals planned to premiere via Apple's new competitive app.
The new service launches Nov. 1 in more than 100 countries and will be available via iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, iPod Touch, Mac, and other platforms. After a week-long free trial, users will pay $4.99 for access.
Other announced Apple TV+ series include Oprah's Book Club, The Morning Show, Ghostwriter, Dickinson, Amazing Stories, and See.
"Apple has always tried to make the world a better place and we believe deeply in the power of creativity," Apple boss Tim Cook said of the brand's television programming expansion earlier this year.
