AMC has released another teaser spot for its new Revolutionary War drama “Turn.” Starring Jamie Bell as farmer-turned-spy Abraham Woodhull, the video briefly highlights the people who assist him in getting information about the Red Coats to the American rebels.
When Zap2it spoke with Bell at the TCA winter press tour, he spoke about Abraham being an unwitting hero. He says he wants audiences to continue to question Abraham’s loyalties and motives.
“So much about that period expects great tales of heroism and great tales of people stepping up to the plate against great odds, and this isn’t. Because [Abraham] isn’t, really. He retreats. He does kind of the exact opposite of what we expect someone to do,” Bell says. “I mean, in the pilot he kind of gives some information but it’s really for his own benefit. It’s not for a noble cause. He wants nothing to do with it.”
“Turn’s” 90-minute premiere airs Sunday, April 6 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Are you intrigued by the new drama?
