AMC's 'Turn' Trailer Promises Gunfire And Wigs

Posted: Updated:

During "The Walking Dead" midseason finale, AMC aired the first trailer for "Turn," the new Revolutionary War drama starring Jamie Bell.

As one of two new dramas scheduled to hit AMC in 2014 -- the other, "Halt and Catch Fire," will focus on the early-'80s computer industry --"Turn" is based on the Alexander Rose's book, "Washington Spies," which tells the true story of the first American spy ring in the 1700s.

AMC's official description of the show reads:

Based on the book Washington’s Spies written by Alexander Rose, Turn is set in the summer of 1778 and tells the story of New York farmer Abe Woodhull, who bands together with a group of childhood friends to form The Culper Ring, an unlikely group of spies who turn the tide in America’s fight for independence. Turn, from AMC Studios, is written by showrunner Craig Silverstein (Nikita) and executive produced by Barry Josephson (Bones, Enchanted) from Josephson Entertainment. The series stars Jamie Bell as Abraham Woodhull, Kevin McNally as Judge Richard Woodhull, Burn Gorman as Major Hewlett, Angus MacFadyen as Robert Rogers, JJ Feild as Major John Andre, Seth Numrich as Ben Talmadge, Daniel Henshall as Caleb, and Heather Lind as Anna Strong.

The trailer above promises secrecy, gunfire and a whole wardrobe of amazing period costumes (those wigs!).
