AMC has debuted the first trailer for Turn, a period spy thriller set during the American Revolution.

Based on research uncovered by Alexander Rose for his excellent 2007 book Washington’s Spies: The Story of America’s First Spy Ring, the drama follows Abe Woodhull (Jamie Bell), a farmer living in British-occupied Long Island who joins up with a group of childhood friends to form the Culper Ring, an unlikely team of secret agents who help turn the tide of the war.

Developed and written by Craig Silverstein (Nikita), Turn also stars Seth Numrich, Daniel Henshall, Heather Lind, Meegan Warner, Kevin McNally, Burn Gorman, Angus MacFadyen, JJ Field and Samuel Roukin. The pilot was directed by Rupert Wyatt.

Turn is set to premiere this spring.
