Coppers stars Tom Weston-Jones (Spooks) as Kevin Corcoran, an Irish immigrant cop in 1860s New York’s Five Points neighborhood during the civil war. 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.
Copper is a a co-production between BBC America and Canadian companies Cineflix, and Shaw Media. As BBC America is a commercial channel and not funded by the license fee, it’s quite possible Copper won’t air on the BBC in the UK. It may be sold to a different channel to maximise it’s return on investment, as we’ve seen with DaVinci’s Demons, which is co-produced by BBC Worldwide and Starz, but airing on Fox in the UK.
