AMC has released a new trailer for its Revolutionary War spy drama Turn, a seres that tackles America’s very first spy ring and the birth of modern espionage tactics. The series which debuts April 6 at 9pm with a 90-minute premiere is based on the book Washington’s Spies by Alexander Rose, and stars Jamie Bell (Billy Elliot). Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) directs the pilot, with Bell playing a New York farmer who forms the Culper Ring in 1778. To be honest, I haven’t heard great things from critics who’ve already seen a few episodes, but the names behind the project (particularly Bell and Wyatt), are reason enough to check out the pilot. Besides, AMC knows a thing or two about cranking out quality original programming so let’s hope that Turn follows suit.
