You don't see many TV series or movies with a Revolutionary War setting. And I don't think I've encountered a Revolutionary War spy story!

You definitely don't see them often! In fact, your comment made me curious as to why I had an existing "Revolutionary War" tag. So I clicked it, and there's only one other story from 2011 about a spy take on the Paul Revere story that was in development then. (Haven't heard anything else about it since.) As I mention in that post, I wrote a Paul Revere spy script myself a number of years ago (completely unrelated), so I did a lot of research on that subject and era and it's pretty fascinating! I'm looking forward to Turn.
