Limetown is about to make its small screen debut.

The gripping fictional story told in the hit 2015 podcast has been adapted into a new series starring Jessica Biel and Stanley Tucci.

On Friday, Facebook Watch released the chilling first trailer for the show in advance of its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.

The series follows Lia Haddock (Biel), a journalist for American Public Radio, as she unravels the mystery behind the disappearance of over 300 people at a neuroscience research community in Tennessee. Tucci plays Emile Haddock, Lia’s uncle who is among those missing.
