Even us incredible journalists make mistakes. Some just happen to be bigger than others.

In the trailer for Apple TV+ limited series “Truth Be Told,” podcaster and former newspaper reporter Poppy Parnell (Octavia Spencer) comes to grips with the fact that her old articles may have assisted in the conviction of an innocent man, Warren Cave (Aaron Paul), of murder.

“I am for truth, no matter who tells it. I am for justice, no matter who it’s for — or against,” Poppy opens the trailer, which Apple released on Thursday.

In the limited series, Parnell comes face to face with Cave, whom she helped convince the public was a “privileged psychopath,” as he tells her.

“The people will get their show,” Paul’s incarcerated character promises Spencer’s free woman.

“Truth Be Told” is created by Nichelle Tramble Spellman. It also stars Lizzy Caplan, Elizabeth Perkins, Michael Beach, Mekhi Phifer, Tracie Thoms, Haneefah Wood and Ron Cephas Jones.

Tramble Spellman and Spencer serve as executive producers, alongside Reese Witherspoon and Lauren Neustadter for Hello Sunshine and Peter Chernin and Jenno Topping for Chernin Entertainment.

Other executive producers include Kristen Campo, Leonard Dick, Ben Watkins, Victor Hsu and Mikkel Norgaard. Endeavor Content serves as the studio along with Chernin Entertainment.

Streaming service Apple TV+ launches on Nov. 1 — it costs $4.99 per month.

“Truth Be Told” premieres on Friday, Dec. 6.
