AMC series "TURN: Washington Spies" schedules open casting call


There is an open casting call scheduled for Sunday December 18, 2016 for the hit AMC television series "TURN: Washington Spies".

Along the way, they create the foundation of the espionage trade through trial and error, and great personal sacrifice. The show tells the unknown story of the Revolution that has never appeared in the history books - the murderous intelligence war, gunrunning and kidnapping, defectors and executioners. But "Turn" is also a spirited, touching account of friendship and trust, fear and betrayal, amid the dark and silent world of the spy.
