TURN: Washington’s Spies: The Complete First Season is now available on DVD and on Blu-ray from Anchor Bay Entertainment. The set includes all 10 episodes from Season 1, plus deleted scenes and insightful bonus featurettes about the making of the series.
A character-driven drama set during the Revolutionary War, TURN: Washington’s Spies takes viewers behind the battlefront to a shadow war fought by everyday heroes who vowed to keep their heroics a secret. Based on Alexander Rose’s book Washington’s Spies, the series centers on Abe Woodhull, a farmer living in British-occupied Long Island who bands together with a disparate group of childhood friends to form the Culper Ring. Together, they risk their lives and honor and turn against family and King for a fight they believe in passionately, ultimately helping George Washington turn the tide of the Revolutionary War in favor of the rebels. Their daring efforts also revolutionized the art of espionage, giving birth to modern spycraft as we know it today.
TURN: Washington’s Spies features Jamie Bell as Abraham Woodhull, Seth Numrich as Ben Tallmadge, Daniel Henshall as Caleb Brewster, Heather Lind as Anna Strong, Kevin R. McNally as Judge Richard Woodhull, Meegan Warner as Mary Woodhull, Burn Gorman as Major Hewlett, Angus MacFadyen as Robert Rogers, JJ Feild as Major John André, and Samuel Roukin as Captain Simcoe.
The series also features music from some of today’s hottest musical artists, including Matt Berninger of The National and Joy Williams of Civil Wars, who composed and performed the title theme, “Hush.” Additional performers include Jake Bugg, Sarah Blasko, Laura Marling, Jonathan Wilson, Gary Lightbody, John McDaid and Andrew Bird.
