COPPER is a gripping crime series set in 1860s New York City, and centers on Kevin Corcoran, an intense, rugged Irish-immigrant cop working the city's notorious Five Points neighborhood. 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.
Says Executive Producer, Academy Award® Winner BARRY LEVINSON (Good Morning Vietnam, Rain Man): "I think it's good storytelling, great characters, and a great sense of time and place."
