'Manhattan' (WGN America)
"Salem," WGN's first original scripted drama, was a trashy series about sexy witches doing unspeakable things with frogs and whatnot. The channel's second entry seems to be aiming a bit higher, with a look back at the men and women in the Manhattan Project responsible for building the atomic bomb. The cast includes John Benjamin Hickey, Olivia Williams and Daniel Stern, its creator Sam Shaw wrote for "Masters of Sex," and its pilot was directed by Emmy winner Thomas Schlamme from "The West Wing." It may not work, but the auspices are more promising.
