AMC REVOLUTIONARY WAR DRAMA "TURN: WASHINGTON'S SPIES" BEGINS PRODUCTION ON SECOND SEASON AT LOCATIONS IN COLONIAL WILLIAMSBURG'S HISTORIC AREA AND THE COLLEGE OF WILLIAM & MARY

Series Is Only the Second Large-Scale Production to Be Granted Permission to Film In Colonial Williamsburg's Revolutionary City

Ian Kahn Returns as Series Regular In Role of George Washington Joined By New Cast Members Owain Yeoman as Benedict Arnold and Ksenia Solo as Peggy Shippen

NEW YORK, NY, October 1, 2014 - The second season of AMC's Revolutionary War drama "TURN: Washington's Spies" began production this week in and around Richmond, Virginia, including at two historic locations in Williamsburg; Colonial Williamsburg's Historic Area and on the campus of the College of William & Mary. The filming in Colonial Williamsburg's Historic Area will take place at the Governor's Palace, which was the official residence for the Royal Governors of the Colony of Virginia, as well as home to two of Virginia's post-colonial governors, Patrick Henry and Thomas Jefferson, and marks only the second time a large-scale production has been allowed to film in the historic location, which previously hosted the filming of "John Adams." The scenes taking place at the College of William & Mary will be filmed in the Sir Christopher Wren Building, which is the oldest college building in the United States and the oldest of the restored public buildings in Williamsburg. Additional production locations in Virginia for the second season include Tuckahoe, the Old Town area of City of Petersburg which will double for New York and Philadelphia; as well as various historic sites and parks in Hanover County, Henrico County, and Charles City County.

"TURN: Washington's Spies" stars Jamie Bell 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. Together they risked their lives and honor, and turned against family and King, for a fight they believed in passionately, ultimately helping George Washington turn the tide of the War in favor of the rebels. The series is based on the book "Washington's Spies," written by Alexander Rose, who joins the writing staff for season two after serving as a consultant in the first season.

"The authenticity that Virginia brings to the story we're telling in 'TURN: Washington's Spies' has been an enormous part of the series," said executive producer Barry Josephson. "We're thrilled to be back for season two and honored that Colonial Williamsburg and the College of William & Mary agreed to allow us access to these amazingly beautiful and magnificently preserved historical buildings."

In addition to Bell, the series also stars 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, Samuel Roukin as Captain John Simcoe and Ian Kahn as George Washington. Joining the cast for season two are Ksenia Solo as Peggy Shippen and Owain Yeoman as Benedict Arnold.

"TURN: Washington's Spies," which attracted a passionate core audience averaging 2 million viewers a week over its first season 10-episode run, will return to AMC with 10 new episodes next spring.

"TURN: Washington's Spies," is a production of AMC Studios and is executive produced by Craig Silverstein ("Nikita"), who also serves as showrunner, and Barry Josephson ("Bones," Enchanted) from Josephson Entertainment. The series is distributed internationally by Entertainment One Television (eOne), through an exclusive multi-year output agreement.
