A new show called “Manhattan” takes a look at the secrets of the Manhattan Project — and how our government built the first nuclear weapon in the 1940s.
The show is being shot in New Mexico, very close to where scientists built the first bomb.
FOX8’s Shannon Smith traveled to the set to dig into the history behind the Manhattan Project.
Manhattan debuts Sunday, July 27 on WGN America.
