By The Staff

A new television series set against the backdrop of the U.S. government’s top-secret effort to develop the world’s first atomic bomb in Los Alamos will begin production in New Mexico later this month, state officials announced Wednesday.
The drama “Manhattan” will follow a group of scientists and their families as they attempt to navigate a world of secrets and lies. The cast includes John Benjamin Hickey as the professor charged with leading the Manhattan Project and Daniel Stern as a mentor to young scientists who knows how to wade through politics.
“I’m excited that this series will highlight New Mexico’s celebrated history and our amazing, picturesque landscapes. I can’t wait to watch it,” Gov. Susana Martinez said in a statement.
The U.S. government’s $2.2 billion Manhattan Project operated from December 1942 until September 1945 at a remote installation in northern New Mexico, which later became home to Los Alamos National Laboratory.
At its peak, the project employed 130,000 workers, but it was kept largely secret and out of public view. It resulted in scientific and technological advancements that ushered in the atomic age.
