AMC has released another promo trailer for their new 1778 Revolutionary War series Turn, which tells the untold story of America's first spy ring. This looks like it will end up being another incredible series from the network. I'm a big history buff, so I think it will be cool to see this story brought to life.
Turn is a spy thriller set during the American Revolutionary War. Based on remarkable new research featured in the book “Washington’s Spies,” by Alexander Rose, it tells the untold story of America’s 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.
The series pilot was directed by Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), and it will be released sometime in spring of 2014.
