British actor Jamie Bell has gone on to have a very successful acting career, since first bursting onto the scene in the impressive movie Billy Elliot. Over the years Jamie has appeared in a number of movies, throwing in the occasional piece of television work, which is exactly what he has planned for this year.
Next up for Jamie Bell is the upcoming new AMC series Turn, which will premiere its pilot episode later in the year. Turn is "set in the summer of 1778, show tells the story of New York farmer, Abe Woodhull, who bands together with a group of childhood friends to form The Culper Ring, an unlikely group of spies who turn the tide in America's fight for independence."
As well as starring Jamie Bell, the upcoming series Turn will also feature a number of talented stars including Michael Gaston, Jamie Harris, Robert Beitzel and Jeremy Flora, to name just a few. The Turn pilot episode has been directed by Rise of the Planet of the Apes director Rupert Wyatt, which can only be a positive thing for the show.
Turn will air on AMC, with the series premiere coming sometime in April, with AMC deciding to pair the new series with fans favourite Mad Men, which makes for an exciting Sunday.
