The Doctor is In: Behind the Scenes of Season Two

Contrary to recent reports, Ato Essandoh is very much alive and is getting back into the Five Points groove, catching all the Copper action behind the scenes. Filming of the series’ second season kicked off last week, and below are a few of our favorite shots from the Doc.
