THE COMPLETE THIRD SEASON
Celebrate Election Day with the Latest Season of the
Thrilling AMC Series on DVD November 8, 2016
BEVERLY HILLS, CA (August 23, 2016) – Based on the book “Washington's Spies” by Alexander Rose, AMC’s critically acclaimed Revolutionary War drama, “ TURN: Washington’s Spies” – The Complete Third Season, arrives on DVD, November 8, 2016 from Anchor Bay Entertainment. Featuring all 10 episodes from the epic third season, as well as never before seen deleted scenes, the fan-favorite series builds towards one of the most notorious moments in American history – the treasonous defection of Benedict Arnold.
Jamie Bell (The Adventures of Tintin, Fantastic Four) stars as Abraham Woodhull, a farmer living in British-occupied Long Island during the Revolutionary War, who bands together with a disparate group of childhood friends to form the Culper Ring – America’s first spy ring. Additional talented cast members include Seth Numrich (“Gravity”), Heather Lind (A Single Shot, “Boardwalk Empire”), Daniel Henshall ( The Babadook, Not Suitable for Children), Kevin R. McNally (Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, “The Mill”), Ian Kahn (“Dawson’s Creek”, “Bull”) and Owain Yeoman (“Generation Kill”, “The Nine.” “Kitchen Confidential”).
“TURN: Washington’s Spies” is a layered, character-driven spy thriller about the untold story of America’s first spy ring, whose members turn against the king and his family to create a new nation. It takes viewers behind the battlefront of the Revolutionary War, to a shadow war fought by everyday heroes -- smugglers, trappers, and farmers -- who vowed to keep their heroics a secret. Behind enemy lines on Long Island, Abe Woodhull (Bell) is a spy for the Patriots, reporting directly to George Washington (Kahn). Embedded within the Continental Army, Benedict Arnold is seduced to become an informant for the British. As the consequences of their espionage ripple through the battlefield, the spy game becomes a heart-stopping race to see which mole will be unmasked first. In 1778, there is only one fate that awaits a captured spy – the hangman’s noose. The price for treason is blood, and not all heroes will survive.
“TURN: Washington's Spies” - The Complete Third Season will be available on DVD for the suggested retail price of $49.98.
The series will return for a fourth and final season with 10 episodes in 2017.
