‘Limetown’ trailer shows Facebook’s take on the hit podcast

The 10-episode mystery series stars and was produced by Jessica Biel.

The first trailer for the Facebook Watch mystery series Limetown is now available. The 10-episode series is based on the popular podcast by the same name. The show stars and was executive produced by Jessica Biel, and it premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival this afternoon. The first two episodes are scheduled to launch on October 16th.

Like the podcast, the series follows American Public Radio journalist Lia Haddock, played by Biel, as she tries to solve the mysterious disappearance of 300 people at a neuroscience research facility in Tennessee. The show's other stars include the likes of Stanley Tucci, Marlee Matlin, Kelly Jenrette and John Beasley.

Facebook Watch hasn't exactly taken off. We'll see if a show like this, that's based on a popular podcast and has some big names attached, can change that.
