NEW YORK, March 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- "Truth Be Told," a new made-for-TV family movie, starring Candace Cameron Bure, David James Elliott and Ronny Cox will premiere on Saturday, April 16, 2011 at 8/7c on FOX.
"Truth Be Told" plays upon the old adage, that "honesty is the best policy," and according to Colorado's leading marriage counselor, Annie Morgan (Candace Cameron Bure, "Full House" and "Make It Or Break It"), honesty is the key to successful long-term relationships. Ironically, Annie has never been married and doesn't always follow her own advice.
Through a misunderstanding, Annie receives an invitation for her and her spouse to join media mogul Terrance Bishop (Ronny Cox, "Stargate SG-1" and "Beverly Hills Cop"), at his New Mexico ranch to discuss her dream job: hosting a radio advice program. Fearful that being single will ruin her chance of a lifetime, Annie conspires with Mark Crane (David James Elliott, "JAG" and "Scoundrels"), an old college friend, recent widower, and father of two teenagers, to pose as a married couple for the weekend. A series of comical misunderstandings color the trip, leaving Annie emotionally involved with Mark's family and battling with her own conscience. As the entertaining and touching story unfolds, Annie begins to realize that the truth may have its consequences, but ultimately it's what opens our hearts and brings out the best in each other.
After spending several years as the face of family entertainment on "Full House," Candace Cameron Bure continues her commitment to quality programming with the role of Annie Morgan.
"What I really like about 'Truth Be Told' is that many of us can relate to Annie at some point in our lives and have ultimately learned that telling the truth is always the best choice," stated Candace Cameron Bure. "This is a touching movie that the entire family will enjoy and will be a great life lesson for kids of all ages."
David James Elliott, best known as Captain Harmon 'Harm' Rabb, Jr. on the hit TV series "JAG," co-stars as Mark Crane, an old college friend of Annie's who is the widowed father of two teenagers. Ronny Cox, who starred as Vice President Robert Kinsey in "Stargate SG-1," and alongside Eddie Murphy in "Beverly Hills Cop," plays media mogul Terrance Bishop. Belita Moreno, best known for her role as George Lopez's mother on "George Lopez," is his wife, Sophia Bishop. The roles of Kenny and Zoe Crane are played by Christopher Brochu and Emma Gould, respectively.
The movie also features a musical performance by 19 Recordings/RCA Nashville recording artist and "American Idol" Season Eight finalist, Danny Gokey, and a cameo appearance by Super Bowl XXXIV MVP Award Winner and likely Hall of Fame quarterback, Kurt Warner.
