WGN AMERICA'S CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED DRAMA "MANHATTAN" WINS 2015 SXSW JURY AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE IN TITLE DESIGN

AUSTIN, TX, March 18, 2014 - WGN America's critically acclaimed drama "Manhattan" won the 2015 SXSW Jury Award for Excellence in Title Design, besting 22 other film and television finalists, including "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" (Marvel Studios), "American Horror Story 4: Freakshow" (FX), "Godzilla" (Warner Bros.), "22 Jump Street" (Columbia Pictures) and "The Leftovers" (HBO). Dan Gregoras, Creative Director at Imaginary Forces, illustrated the winning title design. "Manhattan's" main title sequence can be viewed here: https://vimeo.com/102685630.

This award comes on the heels of another industry accolade acquired by the show's below-the-line crew. Director of Photography, John Lindley, previously won the American Society of Cinematographers' Outstanding Achievement Award in a Television Movie, Miniseries, or Pilot for his work on the premiere episode of the series, "You Always Hurt the One You Love."

Created and written by Sam Shaw and directed by Emmy(R) Award-winning director Thomas Schlamme, "Manhattan" is set against the backdrop of the greatest race against time in the history of science -- the mission to build the world's first atomic bomb. The series follows the brilliant but flawed scientists and their families in Los Alamos as they attempt to coexist in a world where secrets and lies infiltrate every aspect of their lives.

"Manhattan" stars Emmy(R)-nominated actor John Benjamin Hickey ("The Big C," "The Good Wife") as Frank Winter; Olivia Williams ("Rushmore," "The Ghost Writer") as Liza Winter; Daniel Stern ("Home Alone," "Home Alone 2") as Glen Babbit; Ashley Zukerman ("Rush") as Charlie Isaacs; Rachel Brosnahan ("House of Cards") as Abby Isaacs; Katja Herbers ("De Storm") as Helen Prins; Alexia Fast ("Jack Reacher") as Callie Winter; Christopher Denham ("Argo," "Shutter Island") as Jim Meeks; Harry Lloyd ("Game of Thrones") as Paul Crosley; Michael Chernus ("The Big C," "Orange Is The New Black") as Louis "Fritz" Fedowitz; and Eddie Shin ("Men of a Certain Age") as Sid Liao.

"Manhattan" is executive produced by Sam Shaw, Thomas Schlamme, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, Marcy Ross and Dustin Thomason. The series is filmed on location in New Mexico.
