(L-R) Olivia Williams as Liza Winter, John Benjamin Hickey as Frank Winter, Daniel Stern as Glen Babbit, Ashley Zukerman as Charlie Isaacs and Rachel Brosnahan as Abby Isaacs in WGN America’s “Manhattan,” premiering SUNDAY, JULY 27 (9 p.m. ET / 8 p.m. CT)

For the first time ever, we’re offering a glimpse of never-before-seen footage from the first season.  Check out the new video below.

Manhattan is created and written by Sam Shaw (Masters of Sex) and directed by Emmy Award-winning director Thomas Schlamme (The West Wing).

Manhattan stars John Benjamin Hickey, Olivia Williams, Ashley Zukerman, Rachel Brosnahan, Katja Herbers, Alexia Fast, Christopher Denham, Harry Lloyd, Michael Chernus and Daniel Stern.

Manhattan is set in the 1940s in a town whose very existence is classified. Frank Winter and his team of brilliant but flawed scientists have been recruited to work on a project even they could know nothing about until their arrival.  Once inside “The Hill,” a middle-class bubble on a dusty foothill in the New Mexico desert, they begin to sense that this is no ordinary assignment.  In fact, they are living in a town with the world’s highest concentration of geniuses, yet it can’t be found on any map—a place where men and women are torn between duty and their moral values, husbands and wives conceal the truth from each other and their families, the military keeps secrets from the scientists they chaperone, and the scientists keep secrets from each other.
