If you are still grieving the loss of Mad Men have I got some good news for you. It's a little show called Manhattan, on a little network you don't know much about. Scenerio sound familiar?
I've mentioned Manhattan on WGNA several times on the Mad Men Podcast. I really think this is the show all Mad Men fans should be watching. Not just because it is a period show but because it has that same level of quality. The acting, lighting, custumes, scripts everything are perfection.
The show is about the scientists (and their families) who worked on the Manhattan project during WWII. Most of the action takes place at Los Alamos where they all live and work in 1943. The project was incredibly sensitive so everyone was working in secrecy and even their families don't know what they're doing.
Here is the Manhattan season 2 trailer. They've yet to announce a premiere date sometime this Fall is all they say.
If you missed the first season of Manhattan you can catch it on Hulu
Manhattan will also start reairing season 1 on Sunday July 5th on WGN America.
