AMC Revolutionary War Drama ‘Turn’ Spies Full Trailer: “Abe Woodhull Says Hello!”
Along with AMC’s recent announcement of premieres for both the final season of ‘Mad Men,’ and ‘Breaking Bad‘ spinoff ‘Better Call Saul,’ the network has unveiled its most epic trailer yet for Revolutionary War spy drama ‘Turn‘ set to premiere opposite ‘Game of Thrones’ season 4 on April 6.
It remains to be seen if the Revolutionary War can conjure the same excitement level as AMC’s other prestige series, but the full trailer inspires at least a bit of interest in the new drama. Based on Alexander Rose’s book, ‘Washington’s Spies,’ written by showrunner Craig Silverstein (‘Nikita’) and executive produced by ‘Bones’’ Barry Josephson, ‘Turn’ is set in 1778 and follows Woodhull as he bands together with a group of friends to form The Culper Ring, an unlikely group of spies who turn the tide in America’s fight for independence.
In addition to Bell, the 2014 drama stars Meegan Warner as Mary Woodhull, Daniel Henshall as Caleb Brewster, Burn Gorman (‘Pacific Rim‘) as Major Hewlett, Seth Numrich as Benjamin Tallmadge, Heather Lind (‘Boardwalk Empire‘) as Anna Strong, Kevin McNally (‘Pirates of the Caribbean‘) as Richard Woodhull, Angus Macfadyen (‘Braveheart’) as Robert Rodgers, and J.J. Feild as Major John André.
Well, what do you think? Will you ‘Turn’ in when the series premieres April 6 on AMC?
