Griffin Dunne has joined the second season of WGN America’s drama “Manhattan” in a recurring role, Variety has learned.

Dunne has been cast as Woodrow Lorentzen, a tenacious and self-destructive newspaper reporter who finds his way inside the gates at Los Alamos and discovers the scoop of a lifetime — and also a chance to turn his life around.

“Manhattan” hails from Lionsgate Television, Skydance Television and Tribune Studios. It was created by Sam Shaw and is directed by Thomas Schlamme. Both serve as exec producers, along with David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, Marcy Ross and Dustin Thomason.

The series has begun production on its second season in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Dunne is repped by UTA and Industry Entertainment.

    It’s called “Manhattan” but it’s shot in New Mexico? Why not just call the TV show “Santa Fe?” I’m just asking…
