The show's historical events that are based on the real life incidents gives an insight into the routine of people and scientists who were attached to The Manhattan Project. It depicts a dramatic yet meaningful representation of the incidents happened during the experiments.
Even though the show is a drama, it includes a lot of science fiction elements and combines the issues of it with other ones like politics and society. In an interview with Tech Times, Sam Shaw, producer of the show, said that though only parts of the story are based on real events, it presents the actual historical scenario in a glorifying manner.
"It's not as if this show is a classic piece of allegory, but it did feel like a way to write about the present day and write about issues of military secrecy, government secrecy and transparency, as well as the ethics of military force, and the kind of complications of the relationship between science and politics," he said.
