He stars opposite Dennis Quaid and James Franco. Earlier this year, Truitt co-starred in a pivotal flashback episode of the Emmy-winning FX comedy “Atlanta,” which focused on middle-school bullying. Truitt also co-stars on OWN’s “Queen Sugar” and the CW’s “Black Lightning.”
In 2017, Truitt co-starred as young Ronnie DeVoe in the BET mini-series “New Edition.” The three-night television event chronicling the legendary music group set an all-time ratings record for the network.

His slogan “Tru2itt” is the motivating force behind his upcoming t-shirt and apparel line.
