The series' leading actors Missy Peregrym and Gregory Smith are expected to attend MIP-TV in Cannes in April to meet press and affiliates.

Producer Ilana Frank (Would be Kings) serves as the series Executive Producer. Gemini Award-winning screenwriter Tassie Cameron (Flashpoint) is Copper's Showrunner and Head Writer. E1 Entertainment's Noreen Halpern (Hung) and John Morayniss (Haven) also serve as Executive Producers.
