AMC Drama "Turn" Filming in Richmond Area

Military Intelligence is a story that is our newspapers daily in the 21st century, but producers of AMC's new drama "Turn" have ripped their story from the history books. This new series is filming in the Richmond area and is based on Alexander Rose's "Washington Spies." "Turn" centers around Abraham Woodhull (played by Jamie Bell), a Revolutionary War era farmer living behind enemy lines in Long Island, New York. Woodhull joins forces with a group of childhood friends to form the "Culpepper Ring," a team of secret agents who helped George Washington turn the course of history. Richmond and its environs will be "playing the role" of several New York sites. When the series premieres on AMC on April 6th, many local folks will be tuned in, not just because of the fascinating topic, but to see if they can recognize any local landmarks. "Turn" is the first television series to be filmed entirely in the Richmond area, and Richmond was chosen in large part because of its historical character.
