    Its Manhattan with two 't's for sensitive New Yorkers...

    and here's what wikipedia has so far:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manhattan_(TV_series [Broken])

    and the real one for historical context:

    There's a lot of good info there.

    I heard in the trailer some quote about using the power source of stars to create a bomb. I am bothered by this statement as the Manhattan project was concerned with building a fission bomb while stars are powered by fusion.
