CopperNew York on the brink of Lincoln's assassination. General Corcoran struggles to tame the wartime metropolis while wrestling with personal demons, including the betrayal of his wife and best friend.
New York City is on the brink of Lincoln's assassination. In its tough immigrant Irish neighborhood, crime continues to thrive even with power player General Brendan Donovan now at the helm of the local police. “We need order,” Donovan thunders; but hot-headed detective Corcoran refuses to blindly obey this downtown Machiavelli and keeps on dispensing justice the way he thinks best – rules or no rules.
In Season Two, Corcoran struggles to tame the wartime metropolis while wrestling with personal demons, including the betrayal of his wife and best friend. He and those around him continue to torment and stand by one another, struggle and suffer, kill and forgive as they turn New York into the bracing melting-pot that we know today.
COPPER was created by Tom Fontana (BORGIA, OZ, HOMICIDE) and Will Rokos (MONSTER'S BALL, SOUTHLAND); among the executive producers are Barry Levinson and Christina Wayne. Joining the creative team for the second season is author and producer Thomas Kelly (BLUE BLOODS), who aims for a stronger interweaving of the storylines, especially those fronted by the three men who share powerful bonds forged on the battlefields of the Civil War. Season Two also features distinguished guest stars such as Donal Logue (SONS OF ANARCHY)
