The Manhattan Project is well underway and the new trailer is very much a colossal tease: there’s sex; there’s someone who appears to maybe be suicidal; there’s reference to a frightening possibility and more – but most of all, there’s The United States of America.
Manhunter and CSI’s William Petersen joins the cast this season. Check out the explosive teaser for Mahnhattan: Season Two following the jump.
In preparation for a possible upcoming set visit I went to the trusty iTunes and purchased WGN America’s latest scripted series Manhattan. Hey, contrary to popular belief I will occasionally do my homework! I’m blown away by how much I’m digging it. Season two was recently announced and going into production next month. The buzz is starting in a big way as Manhattan just won the 2015 SXSW Jury Award for Excellence in Title Design. I highly recommend picking this show up on your digital service of choice. Check out the sequence below.
Unlike its first scripted series, Salem, WGN’s new original series, Manhattan, is named not after its setting, but for its subject – The Manhattan Project, which was name of the top secret work on developing the atomic bomb. The series, which stars The Big C’s John Benjamin Hickey and Olivia Williams (Dollhouse), is built around the project’s need for secrecy and the lies that are part of the lives of everyone in peripherally involved.
Check out the potentially explosive first trailer after the jump. Manhattan premieres on Sunday, July 27th(9/8C).
