AMC’s ‘Turn: Washington’s Spies’ Begins Production

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 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.”

Turn will be filming specifically 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 series will return to AMC with 10 new episodes next spring.

NCIS: LA
Deep Trouble, Part II

Original Air Date: Sep 29, 2014

Tonight begins the sixth season of NCIS: LA! When we last saw Hanna, Kallen, Deeks and Kensi and the rest of the team, Hetty was on her way to Washington DC while the rest of the team was after a man that was a part of the Herring Broke Brotherhood. The DEA has also been after them and following their new alliances. Just as the episode ended, Kallen and Hanna find themselves locked on a submarine that they had been searching – and the submarine is filled with fertilizer, essentially making it a bomb! What will happen this season? We are about to find out!

Kallen and Hanna are trying to get out of where they’ve been trapped by those that are driving the submarine. Hanna is making something MacGyver style that will help them figure out where they are – and maybe where they are going. But will it work? It does. They are about sixty feet underwater and pretty much undetectable.

After what felt like a very long hiatus, Castle is back. And, just when we thought we’d be getting answers and a happy return, comes more questions and a heartbreaking reunion.

We start right where we left off, a heart broken Kate being called to the scene of the accident thinking that Rick is dead only to find that he was possibly taken. The investigation moves quickly as Kate, Esposito, and Ryan, with the help of Hamptons police, tracks that indicate Rick was dragged from the burning car. With a tip from a helpful fruit vender, the team ends up at a junkyard.
