Copper, coming to Showcase in Canada and BBC America in the US this Fall, was unveiled today as part of Shaw Media’s Upfronts for Summer/Fall 2012.

Copper described as is a gripping crime drama set in 1860s New York City, which focuses on Kevin Corcoran (Tom Weston-Jones; MI-5), an intense, rugged Irish-immigrant cop working the city’s notorious Five Points neighbourhood.

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.

His friendship with two Civil War compatriots – the wayward son of a wealthy industrialist and an African American physician who secretly assists Corcoran with his work – takes him to the contrasting worlds of elegant Fifth Avenue and rural Harlem.

The three men share a secret from their experience on the battlefield that inextricably links their lives forever.
