Pantheon cast

It appears that we somehow missed writing about Pantheon, AMC Networks’ first-ever animated primetime drama series, when it was first announced. But since there were a few new cast additions made recently, we now have an excuse to correct that mistake.

William Hurt (The Incredible Hulk, Captain America: Civil War), Maude Apatow (Euphoria, The King of Staten Island), Corey Stoll (Ant-Man, House of Cards), and Lara Pulver (Sherlock) are the latest members of the Pantheon cast, joining one hell of an impressive lineup of actors who have been attached to this intriguing sci-fi drama for a while already.

One of the new offerings from AMC in 2014 will be Turn, billed as “the story of America’s first spy ring,” set at a point when there was just barely an America. Rupert Wyatt (The Escapist, Rise of the Planet of the Apes) directs the pilot, with Jamie Bell playing a New York farmer who forms the Culper Ring in 1778. The group of childhood friends becomes the nascent country’s first real spy organization, and aims to upend lingering British presence as the Revolutionary War goes on.

Check out the first trailer below.

Update: When we first posted this, the trailer was made private shortly after. Now it’s back (officially, it seems) so you can check out the footage for real.
