Plot Synopsis

TRUTH BE TOLD is a half-hour comedy series about two couples who are both neighbors and best friends, as they navigate through life together and discuss sex, race and everything else your parents told you never to talk about. 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 four-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.
On Friday, December 25, 2015 from 8-9pm ET/PT, NBC premiered the finale of TRUTH BE TOLD, showing back-to-back new episodes. In the penultimate episode (8pm), "The Tell-Tale Tacos," Russell and Angie aren't seated at their favorite fish taco joint, so the gang comes to the conclusion that the restaurant may be discriminating. Mitch eagerly steps up and makes a huge scene, calling out the owner for his despicable behavior in front of the crowded restaurant and winning the praise of his best friend Russell. However, when Mitch later notices the restaurant's "Entire Party Must Be Present To Be Seated" sign, he struggles for a way to come clean to Russell. Meanwhile, Tracy finds out her daughter Sadie has been involved in a bullying incident at school and is determined to help her daughter overcome the issue. When Angie discovers Tracy's perspectives on bullying are shaded by her own high-school experiences, she helps Tracy work through them with the help of Tracy's assistant Linda. Then, in the finale (8:30pm), "The Wedding," Mitch is asked to officiate the wedding of friends Derek (guest star Terrence Jenkins) and Charlene (guest star Letoya Luckett), sending Russell into a tailspin because he was the one who introduced the couple. When a piece of juicy gossip threatens to break-off the wedding, Tracy sees her first child-free weekend away at risk of being derailed by Mitch's obsession with running the perfect event. Meanwhile, as Russell maneuvers to get a bigger role in the wedding, he finds out that his wife Angie thinks he already hogged up too much of the spotlight at their own wedding.
