Copper comes to BBC America in August!
Its a new kind of cop show. The show is set in the 1860's about the Five Points Irish neighborhood of New York City. The show focuses on a rugged young Irish cop (Tom Weston-Jones) who is forced to navigate his unruly and dangerous immigrant neighborhood while interacting with the uptown Manhattan crowd and the black community in Harlem.
In 1864, Detective Kevin Corcoran was New York’s Finest.

Corcoran is struggling to maintain his moral compass in a turbulent world while on an emotional and relentless quest to learn the truth about the disappearance of his wife and the death of his daughter. His friendship with two Civil War compatriots — the wayward son of a wealthy industrialist and an African American physician who secretly assists Corcoran with his work — takes him to the contrasting worlds of elegant Fifth Avenue and an emerging African-American community in rural northern Manhattan.
The three men share a secret from their experience on the battlefield that inextricably links their lives forever. COPPER stars Tom Weston-Jones (MI-5) and Franka Potente (The Bourne Supremacy, Run Lola Run), plus Kyle Schmid (Blood Ties, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants), Anastasia Griffith (Royal Pains, Damages), Ato Essandoh (Damages) and Kevin Ryan (Tripping Tommy). COPPER is created by Fontana and Academy Award®-nominee Will Rokos (Monster’s Ball, Southland).
