“TURN: Washington’s Spies: The Complete First Season” is AMC’s Revolutionary War drama that features the true story of spies during America’s war for independence and how this ring of individuals helped birth modern warfare.

“A character-driven drama set during the Revolutionary War, “TURN: Washington’s Spies: The Complete First Season” takes us 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,” “TURN: Washington’s Spies,” 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 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 Revolutionary War in favor of the rebels.  Their daring efforts also revolutionized the art of espionage, giving birth to modern tradecraft as we know it today, along with all of the moral complexity that entails.”

The release has three discs featuring all 10 episodes of the first season, as well as bonus features detailing the making of the series and deleted scenes. A clip from one of the bonus features, “From Art to Image,” is below the post. The release is $59.99 (Blu-ray plus Digital HD) and $49.98 (DVD).
