Miller appears in Truth Be Told alongside Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer, Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul, ER alum Mekhi Phifer, and Castle Rock's Lizzy Caplan.

Though the casting news was already announced, the trailer for the exciting show has only just been released, as has more information about the show as the premiere approaches. 

Based on the bestselling novel Are You Sleeping by Kathleen BarberTruth Be Told stars Spencer as true-crime podcaster Poppy Parnell. Poppy became nationally famous after helping to convict Warren Cave (Paul) of murder.

Miller will recur in the role of Alex Dunn. Dunn is married to one of Paul's twin sisters, played by Caplan.

Caplan told Variety:

"I play twins in “Truth Be Told,” and one of them is also completely bonkers.[...]But “Truth Be Told” is very different from the book, so if you’ve read the book, the resolution, you don’t know what’s going to happen in the show, as far as I can tell.

Truth Be Told will premiere on December 6 on the new streaming service Apple+ TV, which itself launches on November 1. Members will pay $4.99/month to enjoy the series.
