BBC America Orders a Crime Drama as its First Scripted Series

BBC America

In a press release today, BBC America announced its first scripted television series ... and it's a crime drama.

Copper will center on a young Irish cop assigned to the Five Points neighborhood of New York City in the 1860s. He must "navigate the unruly and sometimes violent currents of his immigrant neighborhood, while simultaneously interacting with uptown Manhattan high society and the emerging black community in Harlem."

Production on the 10 episode series is expected to begin later this year in Toronto with a premiere date of Summer 2012.
