Octavia Spencer May Have Made a Huge Mistake in Apple TV+ Trailer for ‘Truth Be Told’ (Video)

Octavia Spencer May Have Made a Huge Mistake in Apple TV+ Trailer for ‘Truth Be Told’ (Video)
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.

The Good Wife, Ep. 6.17: “Undisclosed Recipients” a light interlude before the final act

The Good Wife, Season 6, Episode 17: “Undisclosed Recipients”

Written by Leonard Dick

Directed by James Whitmore, Jr.

Airs Sundays at 9pm Et on CBS

Remember Eli Gold? Oh, sure, Alan Cumming has been one of the few series-long mainstays not named Alicia on The Good Wife, but Eli has been so one-note for so long that he’s become very easy to take for granted. One of the things that makes “Undisclosed Recipients” one of the most enjoyable episodes of this season’s spotty back half is that it reminds us what made him such an entertaining character in the first place: his sheer, hateful disdain for people who behave incorrectly. After Alicia (drunk with power!) opens the episode by pissing off some of her biggest contributors and key associates (Lemond Bishop, Ed Asner’s Guy Redmayne, and outgoing S.A. Castro), Eli tells her what’s what. The trick,

FX doesn't submit 'Fargo' as 'Transparent,' 'True Detective' lead WGA TV nominations
The Writers Guild of America announced the TV nominees for the 2015 WGA Awards on Thursday (December 4) morning and several new shows broke into the fields in a big way. And, of course, there were a number of big WGA Award nomination head-scratchers. Specifically, where the heck was FX's "Fargo"? The answer is below. Making perhaps the biggest splash was "Transparent," which earned three nominations and, since "Orange Is The New Black" earned two nods and "House of Cards" pick up one, that meant that Amazon Prime and Netflix are, at least for one award-giving organization, on equal footing as creators of original programming. The Jill Soloway-created "Transparent" is nominated for New Series, where it will go against "The Affair," "The Knick," "Silicon Valley" and "True Detective." "Transparent" and "Silicon Valley" are also up for Comedy Series, going against "Louie," "Veep" and "Orange Is The New Black." Lest you panic

The Good Wife, Ep. 6.06: “Old Spice” struggles to juggle disparate tones, stories

The Good Wife, Season 6, Episode 6: “Old Spice”

Written by Leonard Dick

Directed by James Whitmore, Jr.

Airs Sundays at 9pm on CBS

For all of the huge life changes Alicia Florrick has had to endure over the course of The Good Wife’s five-and-change seasons, one character trait has always remained: her atheism. Alicia has never had the inclination towards belief in a higher power – at least, not one beyond the earthly plane. If anything, the years have made her ever more ruthlessly pragmatic as a matter of necessity. Her work and interpersonal relationships have been so toxic for so long that the notion of a loving, interventionist man upstairs has never been an option for her. Though many fans have long complained of the subplots given to Grace, Alicia’s pious daughter, their relationship proves to be the most fascinating aspect of “Old Spice,” an odd and somewhat

The Good Wife, Ep. 5.14, “A Few Words” cannot solve Alicia’s woes

The Good Wife Season 5, Episode 14: “A Few Words”

Written By Leonard Dick

Directed By Rosemary Rodriguez

Airs Sundays at 9 pm (Est) on CBS

Everything that really happens in “A Few Words” happens in the quiet spaces, in silent moments of contemplation, in missed connections and quiet epiphanies. This is an episode set in the space between, with all of the characters out of their element in New York City, angling to land rainmaker Rayna Hecht (Jill Hennessy) while navigating the Aba conference where Alicia is slated to give the keynote address. There’s no case-of-the-week here; in fact, the only law we really see is pending. Everyone is taken out of their element, out of their comfort zone, and left to contend with themselves. Perhaps that’s why there’s so much drinking going on this week.

As Alicia struggles to write her speech, she is awash in memories

The Good Wife, Ep. 5.06: “The Next Day” plays with a new status quo

The Good Wife, Season 5, Episode 6: “The Next Day”

Written By Leonard Dick

Directed By Michael Zinberg

Airs Sundays at 9pm Est on CBS

The game’s afoot this week as Lockhart/Gardner and Florrick/Agos actively compete over a case, Marilyn Garbanza trails Peter’s ethical lapses, and Will works to undermine a potential partnership deal for the firm that walked out from under him. “The Next Day” plays out the early days of the aftermath from “Hitting the Fan” and while it is extremely effective at depicting the next steps, it is often clear this is an episode more committed to establishing a new status quo than one that has an agenda all its own.

There are things that are to be expected in the fall out of last week. Will has a new, young girlfriend with whom he can sex away his feelings (though, honestly, I am
