BBC America’s COPPER gets home release in October

Just days after it premiered on the channel, BBC America has announced that COPPER will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray on October 30th.

Set in 1864 New York City, Detective Kevin Corcoran (Tom Weston-Jones) returns home from the Civil War to find his daughter has been murdered and his wife has disappeared. Distraught and searching for answers, Corcoran’s relentless quest to find justice for his family fuels his pursuit to help the unfortunate residents of Five Points. Assisted by Sixth Precinct partner and friend, Detective Francis Maguire (Kevin Ryan) and Detective Andrew O’Brien (Dylan Taylor), Corcoran goes the extra mile when investigating a crime, much to the dismay of his superiors.

More often than not, Corcoran’s investigations lead him to the steps of the elite citizens of Fifth Avenue. When a young girl is murdered in Five Points, he finds himself at the home of trusted friend and Manhattan aristocrat, Robert Morehouse (Kyle Schmidt). Mustered out of the 71st regiment with Corcoran, Morehouse feels more at home with the immigrants in Five Points than with high-society types. When Corcoran digs into the girl’s murder, Morehouse sets him on the trail of those who believe their status puts them above the law.

Corcoran is thrust into the contrasting worlds of elegant and corrupt Fifth Avenue, and the emerging African-American community in Northern Manhattan with secrets from the battlefield that will haunt him forever.
