CopperBBC America’s period crime TV show Copper has a good pedigree of executive producers behind it, including Academy Award-winner Barry Levinson (Sleepers) and series creators Tom Fontana (TV’s Borgia) and Will Rokos (Monster’s Ball), Emmy winner and Oscar nominee, respectively.

Set in post Civil War era, Copper stars Tom Weston-Jones(TV’s MI-5) as Detective Kevin Corcoran, an Irish immigrant cop in the notorious immigrant neighborhood Five Points. As he tries to get justice for the powerless, Corcoran gets thrust into the two very different worlds of elegant and corrupt Fifth Avenue and the emerging African-American community in Northern Manhattan.

Meanwhile, a secret from the battlefield bonds Corcoran with two Civil War compatriots: the wayward son of a wealthy industriality and an African-American doctor who secretly helps with forensic investigations.
