LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Writer-producer Sam Shaw was grappling with how to craft a TV drama about the war on terror and the price it exacts from those who keep its secrets. He found the answer by looking back to the early 1940s, when U.S. scientists and others working in isolation created the first atomic bombs without the knowledge of Congress, the vice president or the American public. The result is "Manhattan," debuting Sunday (9 p.m.) on cable channel ...
