I saw all of these weird directional signs posted around Williamsburg today so when I did some further research and found out that they are actually filming scenes for the AMC show "Turn" today at Colonial Williamsburg and William and Mary. I've only seen bits and pieces of the show but I'm still pretty excited that they are using the local area.

They filmed portions of Season 1 in Richmond and at least one of the Rt 5 plantations, it is about time they made it to Williamsburg.

Men - Variety of types and ages. Waist size 36 or less.

Military Men – Caucasian males of military age with marching/drilling skills in good physical shape, waist size of 36 or less.

You also need to be thin as well. Someone like myself is too rotund to be a revolutionary era actor. :)
