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.
All the Broadcast TV Shows That Aired Last Fall But Have Been Moved to Midseason (Photos)
These primetime series lost their prime placement for the 2019-2020 slate
The only bad thing about the Fall TV lineup (without accounting for taste) is finding out your favorite show didn’t make the cut. And we sympathize with the viewers who have to wait even longer to see fresh episodes of the programs they care about most. But there just isn’t enough primetime real estate on broadcast to allow for every old show that was renewed or new show that was ordered to premiere when autumn rolls around. To make sure you are fully prepared for some premiere date heartbreak over the next few months, TheWrap has compiled a handy list of all the returning ABC, NBC, Fox, CBS and CW series that aired last fall but won’t be back until next year.
And in case you were wondering what is premiering this fall, you can find that list here.
