Wgn America has unveiled the first full trailer for “Manhattan,” a period drama set around the mission to build the world’s first atomic bomb.
The series — based on the secretive Manhattan Project — will premiere at 9 p.m. on Sunday, July 27. The show is created and written by Sam Shaw (“Masters of Sex”) and directed by Thomas Schlamme (“The West Wing”).
“Manhattan” is set in the 1940s in a town whose very existence is classified. Frank Winter and his team of brilliant but flawed scientists have been recruited to work on a project they could know nothing about until their arrival. Once inside “the Hill,” a middle-class bubble on a dusty foothill in the New Mexico desert, they begin to sense that this is no ordinary assignment. In fact, they are living in a town with the world’s highest concentration of geniuses, yet it can’t be found on »
