Lia Haddock (Jessica Biel) is an American Public Radio journalist investigating the fate of 326 residents who mysteriously vanished from Limetown, Tennessee, including that of her own uncle, Emile Haddock (Stanley Tucci). Home to a scientific research facility led by Dr Oskar Totem, this is a utopian town that feels creepy right from the outset.
The incident happened 15 years previously, while Lia was just a teenager, but quickly fell under the radar when no answers were found and the media turned its attention to other events. Fuelled by the loss of her uncle, and now working as a professional radio journalist, Lia makes it her personal mission to uncover the truth.
Limetown will appeal to fans of conspiracy stories, working on the premise that “People vanish. The truth doesn’t” – and it quickly becomes apparent that some of the residents are still alive and well, albeit with something to hide.
Originally released as a podcast in 2015 by Two-Up, which quickly found a fanbase on
iTunes, the new Limetown series is a Facebook Watch Original comprising 10 weekly instalments.
