During World War II, spies and secrets lurked everywhere — even in America, as showcased in the trailer for the upcoming series “Manhattan.”
Underscored by the haunting music of Iceland’s Sigur Ros, the stakes are set up for the Manhattan Project, which would lead to the creation of the atom bomb and eventually bring about an end to World War II.
Stories about World War II have been told, but none have dug into this very specific moment in American history, and uncovered the human cost. “Manhattan” premieres on WGN America Sunday, July 27.
Indiewire has partnered with WGN America and its new series “MANHATTAN.” Set against the backdrop of the greatest race against time in the history of science — the mission to build the world’s first atomic bomb — “Manhattan” follows the brilliant but flawed scientists and their families in Los Alamos as they attempt to coexist in a world where secrets and lies infiltrate every aspect of their lives. The series debuts this Sunday, July 27, 2014 — find out more here.
