Copper is a drama television series created by Tom Fontana and Will Rokos for BBC America. It is set in 1860s New York City, during the American Civil War, and stars Tom Weston-Jones as an Irish immigrant policeman, or "copper", who patrols and resides in the Five Points neighborhood.
Irish-American detective Kevin Corcoran, a former boxer, returns
from the Civil War and finds that his wife is missing and his daughter,
dead. Working the notorious Five Points Neighborhood in New York, he
tries to learn what happened to his family. Two wartime friends -- a
wealthy industrialist's wayward son and a talented
black doctor who share a secret with him -- assist in his search for the
truth. The friends take Corcoran to the contrasting worlds of elegant
Fifth Avenue and an emerging black community in rural northern
Manhattan, as they help the detective in his struggle to maintain his
moral compass in a turbulent world.
