COPPER, BBC AMERICA'S FIRST ORIGINAL SCRIPTED DRAMA
PREMIERES AUGUST 19 AT 10:00PM ET/PT
1864 New York City drama from Academy Award(R)-winner Barry Levinson, Emmy(R)-winner Tom Fontana, and Academy Award(R)-nominee Will Rokos
In a time when disorder and mayhem were the law of the land, Kevin Corcoran was New York City's finest. From the brilliant minds of Academy Award(R)-winner Barry Levinson, Emmy(R)-winner Tom Fontana and Academy Award(R)-nominee Will Rokos, BBC AMERICA's first original scripted series premieres with 10 episodes on Sunday, August 19 at 10:00pm ET/PT. This gripping drama, filled with intrigue, corruption, mystery and murder follows Detective Kevin Corcoran - 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.
