Go behind the scenes of ‘Manhattan’ ahead of Sunday night’s debut

A new show called “Manhattan” makes it’s debut Sunday night. It’s filmed in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

FOX31 Denver’s Tammy Vigil visited the set of the show recently.

It’s a period drama based on the secretive Manhattan project set in 1943 Los Alamos, which ultimately led to the creation of the atomic bomb. The show features some well-established actors including Daniel Stern who plays one of the brilliant scientists. You might know him from “Home Alone.”

Watch Tammy’s video report above for more.

Manhattan premieres Sunday night at 7 p.m. MDT.
