Manhattan is an television drama on WGN America and is the second original series for the network. Set in 1943 at the time of the Manhattan Project, the series focuses on a New Mexico town (Los Alamos) the outside world knows nothing about. The federal government tells the scientists only what they need to know, while the scientists keep secrets from their families. While some historical figures are referenced, most characters are fictional, and the show is not intended to maintain historical accuracy.
