Dr. Phil to Casey Anthony's Parents: 'You Know the Truth'

Hand Out/ABC News(LOS ANGELES) -- Dr. Phil McGraw has filmed his sit-down with Cindy and George Anthony, the parents of Casey Anthony, who was acquitted in July of murdering her daughter Caylee in 2008.

Her parents broke their silence with the TV therapist in an exclusive interview that will be the main focus of the 10th season premiere of Dr. Phil, which will air Monday, Sept. 12 on CBS.

A promo for the interview shows McGraw holding the parents' feet to the fire.

"You know the truth, don't you?" he asks.  "There are millions of people that want to shake you awake," McGraw said of the parents, who only found out their granddaughter was missing 31 days after she was last seen alive.

George and Cindy Anthony's responses were not shown.

The pair became globally famous after Casey finally admitted her two-year-old was missing, stringing an elaborate web of lies as to who may have kidnapped her.  Caylee's body was found by Florida authorities six months later in a swampy area not far from where Casey Anthony lived with her parents.

Later, George and Cindy took the stand in their daughter's trial.  George Anthony was accused by the defense of having sexually molested Caylee, which led her to cover-up her daughter's accidental death, according to her lawyers.  He denied the accusations, but the defense was ultimately successful.

Casey Anthony is currently free, but in Florida undergoing a year of probation on check fraud charges.
