An investigative reporter reconsiders whether she helped put an innocent man in prison in the Apple TV+ drama series Truth be Told. A featurette video with commentary from cast and crew of this ongoing show discusses what it means to reconsider something so important.

Watch it now:

The short video is called “Reconsidered.” Apple’s description says “Cast and Crew of Truth be Told parse out the way that Poppy Parnell and Reconsidered play a part in Warren Cave’s conviction.”

The show is fictional, but explores the ramifications of a true-crime podcast. It stars Octavia Spencer as Poppy Parnell, a podcaster who reopens the murder case that made her a national sensation after new evidence is found. “Her investigation navigates urgent concerns about privacy, media and race,” notes Apple. The podcast is called Reconsidered, not surprisingly.
