New Trailer for AMC’s Revolutionary War Drama TURN Starring Jamie Bell

     December 20, 2013


AMC has released a new trailer for the upcoming new drama series Turn.  Set during the Revolutionary War, the show centers on a New York farmer named Abe Woodhull (Jamie Bell) who bands together with a group of childhood friends to form the Culper Ring, a group of spies who turn the tide in America’s fight for independence.  It’s a unique angle with which to approach a Revolutionary War drama, and though this trailer is quite brief, the footage gleaned thus far is highly promising.  Moreover, Rise of the Planet of the Apes director Rupert Wyatt helmed the pilot.

Hit the jump to watch the new trailer.  The show also stars Seth NumrichHeather LindMeegan WarnerKevin McNallyBurn GormanAngus MacFadyenJJ Field, and Samuel Roukin.  Turn will premiere on AMC in spring 2014.

Here’s the official synopsis for Turn:

“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.

    AMC brand right now is not very trustworthy. They used to be the new home of prestigious drama with shows like Breaking Bad and Mad men. Then they had there Star Wars versus Sorcerer moment. When they bought in deeper into popcorn blockbuster quality storytelling with The Walking Dead. Instead of continuing their Adult Progressive storytelling with their last quality gem show Rubicon.

    Turn looks very low budget and AMC track record has gone considerably down. Their last new show Low Winter Sun was late too party filled with clichés and imitation of what their previous brand name.

      They have diversity. Unique reality show (though I’m not a fan of them) and they take risks. I will give any series they release the benefit of a pilot episode.
