BBC America’s first original scripted series, Copper, which delivered the channel’s highest rated series premiere ever, is building to an explosive finale that will change lives and New York City forever. With Confederate terrorists threatening to destroy the city as they know it, unexpected traitors will be revealed and once air-tight bonds will be broken beyond repair. The gripping drama – filled with intrigue, corruption, mystery and murder – will close its record-breaking season with Detective Kevin Corcoran (Tom Weston-Jones) giving everything he has to protect his town from the terrorist attack he knows is coming. From award-winning executive producers Tom Fontana, Barry Levinson and Will Rokos, the penultimate episode of Copper, “A Day To Give Thanks” will air October 14 at 10/9c, and the season finale, “A Vast and Fiendish Plot” will air October 21, 10/9c.
The series began with Corcoran’s search for answers after returning from the Civil War to find his daughter murdered and wife missing. Assisted by partner and friend, Detective Francis Maguire (Kevin Ryan) and Detective Andrew O’Brien (Dylan Taylor), Corcoran seeks justice for the powerless as a way of dealing with the injustice of his own loss. His friendship with two Civil War compatriots – Robert Morehouse (Kyle Schmid), the wayward son of a wealthy industrialist and African-American Doctor Matthew Freeman (Ato Essandoh), who secretly assists Corcoran with his work – takes him to the contrasting worlds of elegant Fifth Avenue and Northern Manhattan.
In the season finale, Corcoran teams up with Robert Morehouse and the coppers of the Sixth Precinct to thwart a brazen terrorist attack on New York City by Confederate soldier’s intent on watching the city burn. With his personal life in shambles, his closest friendship in pieces and the truth finally uncovered about his daughter’s death, Corcoran must set aside his inner turmoil to save the city he vehemently protects. Meanwhile, betrayal runs deep as Morehouse learns just how entangled his father has become with his new business associates. Madam Eva Heissen (Franka Potente) and Aristocrat Elizabeth Haverford (Anastasia Griffith) find themselves in unexpected positions, while in Carmansville, Doctor Matthew Freeman makes a dangerous decision in defending his wife.
