WGN America has ordered its second original series. B&C reports that the channel ordered a project called "Manhattan," about the development of the first atomic bomb.
The drama received a 13-episode order, the report notes. It is written and created by Sam Shaw of "Masters of Sex."
The series joins WGN America’s witch trials drama "Salem" on the channel’s 2014 programming slate.
Production will start in New Mexico this winter with the network planning a summer debut.
