New BBC America Series This Summer: Copper
— Barry Levinson
and Tom Fontana have produced a couple of memorable television series together, Homicide: Life on the Street and Oz. (You can add Diner, Rain Man and Bugsy to Levinson's credits, and St. Elsewhere to Fontana's.) The two are at it again with Copper, a period piece set in the notorious Five Corners of Civil War-era New York City. Premiering on Sunday, August 19, 9 p.m. ET, the crime-drama will be the first sole-produced series for BBC America, and follows an Irish immigrant cop, Kevin Corcoran, (Tom Weston-Jones, MI-5) as he tries to bring justice to a rough, lawless city of corrupt haves and oppressed have-nots. The two talk here about why and how the show came to be. —EG
