'Turn' Creators Stress Fact-Based Story, Release Trailer


AMC Turn Premiere


While some shows are more than happy to take liberties when serializing true stories, the creators behind AMC’s forthcoming drama ‘Turn’ are stressing it’s based on fact.

Set to debut on April 6 with a 90-minute special premiere, ‘Turn’ takes place during the Revolutionary War. It follows a group of spies known as the Culper Ring, America’s first subversive enterprise, with which George Washington corresponded at great length.

"There's a seedy underbelly to the war," said Craig Silverstein, executive producer, to reporters at the TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour. "The vibe you get is it was so pure then; how did it get so complicated now? What we're saying is no, no, no, it was complicated then."

The series is based upon the book ‘Washington Spies’ by Alexander Rose, and stars Jamie Bell as Abe Woodhull, a farmer living in British-controlled New York who bands together with friends to start the secretive organization.

Rose also iterated that the stories that will be told are true, even if they are shady or unsavory. He spoke of being interested in the “unseen or hidden side of Washington…that’s been obscured in the last two hundred years in order to maintain some presidential dignity…He loved to spy and he was really good at it,” relayed Deadline.

In addition to getting a premiere date for the 10-episode season, and the assertion that there is plenty of material available for potential seasons to follow, ‘Turn’ got a brand new trailer, which you can check out below.
