"Truth and Power" (TV show) is a reality series on Pivot that is narrated by Oscar-nominated actress Maggie Gyllenhaal ("The Honorable Woman," "The Dark Knight").

This series centers on the very timely question, "What happens when private institutions and governments abuse their power and break the public trust?" Each half hour-long episode pulls the curtain back on stories of ordinary people going to extraordinary lengths to reveal corporate exploitation and infringement on civil liberties resulting from government overreach. Certain authorities and organizations are attempting to silence dissent and hinder 21st century social movements in ways that directly threaten democracy.

Using probing interviews, original footage, and newly unearthed documents, the series unpacks the timely issues of security, surveillance and profiteering in the digital age.

"Truth and Power" is executive produced by Brian Knappenberger ("The Internet's Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz") for Luminant Media. Jeff Skoll and Belisa Balaban serve as executive producers for Pivot.
