Her Hidden Truth is a thriller/drama television film starring Kellie Martin, Antonio Sabato Jr. and Ken Howard. It was directed by Dan Lerner and written by Pamela K. Long, who was also one of the film's producers.[1] The film first aired on November 12, 1995 on the National Broadcasting Company Network.[2]


Young teenager Billie Calhoun is wrongly accused of setting a deadly arson fire that killed her mother and sister. After years in a juvenile detention center, she requests an early release around the age of 18, but it is denied. During the journey back to the center, she escapes the prison van to find the real killer of her mother and sister. Out on her own, she disguises herself and befriends a young cop named Matt Samoni, and together they set out to uncover the truth.[3][4]



The film stars Kellie Martin as Billie Calhoun, Antonio Sabato Jr. as Det. Matt Samoni and Ken Howard as Jack Devereaux. Others in the film include Reed Diamond as Clay Devereaux, Bruce Weitz as Lt. Ricky Levine, Cindy Pickett as Laney Devereaux and Gordon Clapp as Father Paul.[5]

Today, the film only remains on out-of-print and hard-to-find VHS, released exclusively in the UK via Sony and Odyssey. The release was on May 14, 1997, almost two years after the original American broadcasting.[6] The film has never received a DVD release.[7] In recent times, the movie can often be found unofficially on DVD.

The film's tagline on the UK VHS release reads "Eight years ago Billie was accused of murder, but who really killed her mother?"[7]

The film was filmed in Nashville, Tennessee.[2]

Her Hidden Truth was created by production companies Ascato TV Inc. and NBC Productions.[8]
