AMC’s ‘Turn’ Teaser: No One Should Be Trusted (EXCLUSIVE VIDEO)

Turn AMC

“The British have spies everywhere, and we need the same,” Seth Numrich’s Ben Tallmadge says in a Variety exclusive teaser to AMC’s upcoming Revolutionary War spy drama, “Turn.”

Tallmadge would go on to become a member of the United States House of Representatives, but in this show he’s an organizer of the Culper Ring, an unlikely team of secret agents who help George Washington turn the tide of the war in favor of the Rebels.

“Turn” centers around Abraham Woodhull ( “Billy Elliot’s” 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 group. In this series, which promises to tell the “untold story of America’s first spy ring,” audiences will experience the fight-or-flight nature of the Revolutionary War and witness those who defy king and family to create a new nation while vowing to keep their work a secret.

The show 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.

“Turn” will air its 90-minute premiere at 9 p.m. April 6 on AMC.
