AMC has released a new promo for their new scripted drama “Turn,” premiering in spring 2014. Check it out below!
“Turn” is a layered, character-driven spy thriller set during the American Revolutionary War. Based on remarkable new research featured in the book “Washington’s Spies,” by Alexander Rose, the untold story of America’s first spies has finally been decoded and declassified. “Turn” tells the tale of 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. A vibrant story with contemporary significance, “Turn” turns history into suspenseful and resonant entertainment.
“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.
