Copper, from producers Barry Levinson (Diner), Tom Fontana (Oz), Will Rokos (Monster's Ball) and Christina Wayne, follows a rugged Irish immigrant cop  (Tom Weston-Jones) who seeks justice for the powerless.

"BBC America's first original scripted series, Copper, has proven to be a perfect fit for the channel. Our viewers have made it our highest-rated series premiere ever and highest-rated drama series ever," Perry Simon, General Manager, Channels, BBC Worldwide America's General Manager of Channels, said in a statement. "[Copper] truly captured the boiling pot that was New York City in 1864. We can't wait to get started on the second season."
