WGN America has unveiled the first full look at its original scripted drama series Manhattan, which is set to premiere July 27. From writer Sam Shaw (Masters Of Sex) and director Thomas Schlamme, Skydance TV, Tribune Studios and Lionsgate TV, the 13-episode series is set against the backdrop of the clandestine mission to build the world’s first atomic bomb in Los Alamos, NM and follows the brilliant but flawed scientists and their families. The premiere follows the revamped networks’ first scripted effort, Salem, which premiered to solid numbers April 20 and then saw a big pop on Live+3 data. A third original, event series Ten Commandments, bows in 2015. Check out the first look at Manhattan here:
