Best friends, real talk, uncensored
08:30 PM - 09:00 PM
Truth Be Told takes a look at the life of two best friends, a meek politically correct Caucasian ethics professor and an easy-going African American and their families. will premiere from Friday 13th March 2020 at 20h30 on SABC 3.
If you can think it, they will most likely say it in this unabashed new comedy about two diverse couples — Mitch (Mark-Paul Gosselaar, “Saved by the Bell”) and Tracy (Vanessa Lachey, “Dads”), and Russell (Tone Bell, “Bad Judge”) and Angie (Bresha Webb, “Hung”) — a fearless foursome who are both neighbors and best friends. As they navigate through life side by side, they can’t help but analyse and obsess about everything. From sex and race to anything else your parents told you never to talk about, absolutely no topic is out of bounds for this wildly outspoken group.
Mitch is a college ethics professor, which might explain why he goes through life with a heightened attention to justice. He knows he can’t change the world but is quite determined to change his corner of it. At his side is his beautiful wife of five years, Tracy, who, by day is a tough-as-nails attorney and by night a nurturing mom to their 4-year-old daughter, Sadie.
Their best friends, Russell and Angie, live next door. Russell is Mitch’s male voice of reason. A stand-up comic, Russell has absolutely no fear when it comes to talking to someone or making a scene in public to prove his point. His new bride, Angie, is that spirited special kind of woman who, while married to a guy that’s quite a handful, is able to go toe-to-toe with him at a moment’s notice.
These four friends love and support each other so much that they can talk about any topic in the most honest, candid and humorous ways. They are the kind of conversations people have with their real friends.
Based on his life, DJ Nash serves as writer and executive producer. Will Packer (Ride Along) and director Pam Fryman (How I Met Your Mother) also serve as executive producers. Truth Be Told is produced by Universal Television and Will Packer Productions.
