TVLine Items: First Manhattan Teaser, Will Ferrell's HBO Field Day and More

Manhattan Season 2

Pop quiz: How much evil does it take to do good?

That’s the very question that WGN America’s Manhattan is hoping to solve in its upcoming second season, for which a trailer was released Thursday.

In the video below, Frank and Liza Winter, Abby Isaacs, Fritz Fedowitz and more Los Alamos residents crack under the pressure of a polygraph test — until one of them decides to hint at the unsettling truth of his work on The Hill.

Scroll down to watch the new teaser for Manhattan, which returns this October.

    I can’t wait for Manhattan. Although that’s a show that I tended to watch about 4 episodes, stop for a while, watch 4 more, stop, but I still really liked it though.
    So “Guilty” sounds like the Amanda Knox case in London instead of Italy. I’d love to watch it and I’m pretty sure it’s gotta be like 1000x better than that “The Face of An Angel” movie. Therefore, ABC Family will not pick it up since I want to see it.

    Finally some Manhattan season 2 info. I loved the first season and can’t wait. Also been watching Salem. WGN needs to expand into more original shows. We don’t get WGN in our Comcast lineup, but they do offer it On Demand. On one of my TV’s. Still can’t figure that one out and apparently Comcast can’t either. We have 6 tv’s all on the X1 platform and we can only get WGN On Demand to work on 1 tv. Sorry I went off topic. Just wanted to see if anyone else has that issue with them. Anyway, cant wait for Manhattan’s new season.
