WGN America has just released a "First Look" video featuring its upcoming original drama series "Manhattan." Created by Sam Shaw ("Masters of Sex"), the show is set in a mysterious 'classified' town in the New Mexico desert, where Frank Winter (John Benjamin Hickey) and his team of brilliant but flawed scientists work on a project they had to keep incredibly secret -- because it would lead to the creation of the atom bomb.

The clip, combining first-look footage, behind-the-scenes interviews and commentary, features Shaw, Emmy Award-winning director Thomas Schlamme (“The West Wing”), along with stars Hickey ("The Big C," "The Good Wife"), Olivia Williams ("Rushmore," "The Ghost Writer"), Ashley Zukerman ("Rush") and Rachel Brosnahan ("House of Cards") revealing why this will be the show that finally puts a human face on the Manhattan Project. 

"Manhattan" premieres Sunday July 27 at 9:00pm. Check out this first look below:
