BBC AMERICA’s COPPER, from the brilliant minds of Academy Award®-winner Barry Levinson, Emmy®-winner Tom Fontana and Academy Award®-nominee Will Rokos, is a gripping drama, filled with intrigue, corruption, mystery and murder. Set in 1864 New York City, the series follows Detective Kevin Corcoran (Tom Weston-Jones, MI-5) – a rugged Irish immigrant cop – as he seeks justice for the powerless in the notorious immigrant neighborhood of Five Points. Bonded by battle to two Civil War compatriots – the wayward son of a wealthy industrialist and an African-American physician who secretly assists the forensic investigations – Corcoran is thrust into the contrasting worlds of elegant and corrupt Fifth Avenue, and the emerging African- American community in Northern Manhattan. The three men share a secret from the battlefield that inextricably links their lives forever. The series is created by Tom Fontana, Will Rokos and executive produced by Barry Levinson and Cineflix Studios President, Christina Wayne (Broken Trail and executive in charge of Mad Men), together with Fontana and Rokos.
