This week, executive producer Craig Silverstein tells Entertainment Weekly that TURN’s depiction of the Revolutionary War is different from grade-school history books, while the drama is one of Indiewire’s most anticipated TV shows in 2014. Plus, TURN debuts a new trailer. Read on for more:
• Entertainment Weekly interviews Craig Silverstein, TURN‘s executive producer, about the reality of the Revolutionary War, how it was “a war fought between neighbors, it was fought house to house…”
• TURN is one of Indiewire’s most anticipated TV shows this year because “it’s been a while since TV mined the fertile territory of the Revolutionary War, and the idea of a cable drama—a spy drama, no less—set in that period is immediately appealing.”
• TURN‘s Craig Silverstein, asserts that the Revolutionary War had “a seedy underbelly,” according to The Hollywood Reporter. Silverstein adds that the war was actually “much more complicated” than people remember, TheWrap reports.
• Indiewire checks out TURN‘s new trailer and observes that the drama “appears to do a vibrantly effective job of capturing the high tension and grave stakes of that dangerous undertaking.”
• Deadline reports that Alexander Rose, who wrote the book on which TURN is based, says he was inspired by George Washington’s correspondence with the spy ring that’s the subject of the TV show.
• TURN will debut on April 6, with a 90-minute premiere starting at 9/8c, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
• Entertainment Weekly showcases the first trailer for TURN and thinks that “even younger viewers who might otherwise not be interested in a wigs-and-muskets historical drama might be intrigued by this one.” Screen Rant calls the trailer “action packed and fast paced.” The trailer “looks great,” according to TV.com.Read More
