Jessica Biel Is Willing to Die for Her Podcast in Facebook Watch’s ‘Limetown’ Trailer (Video)

And she might, if she keeps trying to figure out how more than 300 people just vanished

Jessica Biel takes podcasting to a whole new level in the trailer for her new Facebook Watch drama series, “Limetown.”

In the video above, which was released Friday, ahead of the show’s world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, you’ll see Lia Haddock (Biel), a journalist for American Public Radio (APR) try to unravel the mystery behind the disappearance of over 300 people at a neuroscience research community in Tennessee via her podcast.

And, uh, there are very clearly some people who don’t want Lia getting to the bottom of this vanishing act, as Stanley Tucci’s character warns. But that’s fine, as Lia makes it clear they’ll have to kill her before she’ll stop podcasting/trying to solve this case.

According to the streaming platform, “Mysterious and gripping, Facebook Watch’s latest scripted series will keep viewers guessing until the very end, with almost every episode ending in an edge-of-your-seat cliffhanger.”

Along with Biel and Tucci, “Limetown” — based on the fiction podcast of the same name — stars Marlee Matlin (Quantico, The Magicians), Kelly Jenrette (The Handmaid’s Tale, Grandfathered), John Beasley (Shots Fired, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks), Sherri Saum (The Fosters, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Omar Elba (A Hologram For the King), Louis Ferriera (The Man in the High Castle, S.W.A.T.), and Janet Kidder (Arrow, The Man in the High Castle).

“Limetown” will premiere with two episodes on Wednesday, Oct. 16 at 3 p.m. ET/12 p.m. PT on Facebook Watch.
