AMC has today released their trailer for their upcoming scripted drama “Turn,” set to premiere in spring 2014. Check it out in the player below!
Turn is a spy thriller set during the American Revolutionary War. Based on remarkable new research featured in the book Washingtons Spies, by Alexander Rose, it tells the untold story of Americas first spies. Turn follows Abe Woodhull (Jamie Bell), a farmer living behind enemy lines in British-occupied Long Island, who bands together with a group of childhood friends to form The Culper Ring, an unlikely team of secret agents who would help turn the tide of the war in favor of the Rebels. Their daring efforts also revolutionized the art of espionage, giving birth to modern tradecraft as we know it today, along with all of the moral complexity that entails.
From AMC Studios, “Turn” was developed and written by Craig Silverstein (Nikita) who also serves as series showrunner. The pilot was directed by Rupert Wyatt (Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes). Barry Josephson (Bones, Enchanted) from Josephson Entertainment is executive producer. The series also stars Seth Numrich (The Good Wife) as Ben Talmadge, Daniel Henshall (The Snowtown Murders) as Caleb, Heather Lind (Boardwalk Empire) as Anna Strong, Meegan Warner as Mary Woodhull, Kevin McNally (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) as Judge Richard Woodhull, Burn Gorman (The Dark Knight Rises) as Major Hewlett, Angus MacFadyen (Braveheart) as Robert Rogers, JJ Field (Captain America: The First Avenger) as Major John Andre and Samuel Roukin (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part I) as Captain Simcoe.
