Turn: Washington's Spies (known as Turn in Season 1) is an American period drama television series based on Alexander Rose's book Washington's Spies: The Story of America's First Spy Ring, which tells the untold story of America's first spy organisation, the Culper Ring.
A historical thriller set during the Revolutionary War, Turn centres on Abe Woodhull (Jamie Bell), a farmer living in British-occupied Long Island who bands together with his childhood friends to form the Culper Ring - an unlikely team of secret agents who not only went on to help George Washington turn the tide of the war but also gave birth to modern spycraft.
The series stars Jamie Bell as Abraham Woodhull, Seth Numrich as Ben Tallmadge, Heather Lind as Anna Strong, Daniel Henshall as Caleb Brewster, Meegan Warner as Mary Woodhull, Kevin McNally as Judge Richard Woodhull, Burn Gorman as Major Hewlett, Angus MacFadyen as Robert Rogers, JJ Feild as Major John Andre, and Samuel Roukin as Captain Simcoe.
Joining the cast for Season 2 are Ksenia Solo as Peggy Shippen and Owain Yeoman as Benedict Arnold.
Turn, from AMC Studios, is written by showrunner Craig Silverstein (Nikita) and executive produced by Barry Josephson (Bones, Enchanted) from Josephson Entertainment.
