This year may have seen the end to one of AMC's most popular hit dramas, 'Breaking Bad,' but that doesn't mean the network doesn't have a few new hopefuls on the horizon. During Sunday night's rather epic midseason finale of 'The Walking Dead,' AMC took a break from all the zombie craziness to unveil the trailer for its highly anticipated, upcoming Revolutionary War drama, 'Turn.'
Based on the book 'Washington's Spies' by Alexander Rose, the series will tell the untold story of America’s very first spy ring by following 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 a secret team of agents known as The Culper Ring.
But before you go thinking this is for history buffs only, let us remind you of just how popular historical dramas are becoming nowadays. ('Sleepy Hollow,' anyone?) So even younger viewers who normally might not find wigs and muskets to be all that interesting might want to consider giving this show a second or third look. Let's not forget, history can look very attractive when it wants to.
Aside from Bell, the cast also includes the likes of Seth Numrich ('The Good Wife') as Ben Talmadge, Heather Lind ('Boardwalk Empire') as Anna Strong, Burn Gorman ('The Dark Knight Rises') as Major Hewlett, JJ Field ('Captain America: The First Avenger') as Major John Andre, and Samuel Roukin ('Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part I') as Captain Simcoe.
Check out the 30-second trailer below and see if it's worthy of your DVR schedule.

Well, you WERE the bad guys. You wouldn't expect to see a major production relating to WWII show a heck of a lot of sympathy or revisionism in favor of the Nazis, would you?

AS LONG AS they don't make it yanks win every single thing-they do
which they don't
people seem to forget-many of the people who were in the revolution-were English,fighting English-as well as yanks etc
fed up of seeing history-retold-just for film/tv
if it carries on-half our kids will think-that even tho we won ww2--that the Nazi's r still about
on the moon,
we need history told real/no matter if the brits/yanks etc-r bad/or good

"Highly anticipated" Not sure if it's just me being in the UK but this is the first mention of this show i've seen. I'm sure AMC will have been advertising it on their channel but it doesn't seem to be getting much coverage on the net, even IMDB only has 2 forum posts on it. That being said, i'll give anything AMC does a shot as a good chunk of my favourite shows over the past few years have came from them. Apart from Low Winter Sun i can't think of any of their shows i haven't enjoyed.
