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”).

In fact, they are living in a town with the world’s highest concentration of geniuses, yet it can’t be found on »
