Summer TV Preview: New Shows
Copper (Sunday, 8/19 on BBCA)
The first original series for BBC America is this period drama set in the 1860s about an Irish American cop in the Five Points neighborhood. Like "Gangs of New York," but for TV. The fact that it's co-created by Tom Fontana ("Homicide," "Oz") means it's well worth finding BBCA in your channel lineup.
