Copper Returns to BBC America June 23rd!
The premiere announcements just keep on coming today! First, HBO's True Blood was announced for June 6th, then AMC's The Killing for June 2nd and now one of my favorites of last year, BBC America's Copper for June 23rd.
Joining the already stellar cast of Tom Weston-Jones, Kyle Schmid, Anastasia Griffith, Ato Essandoh, Franke Potente, Kevin Ryan and Kiara Glasco will be Donal Logue, and OZ costars EamonnWalker (currently starring on Chicago Fire on NBC) and Lee Tergesen (seen on ABC's Red Widow). A mini OZ reunion!
The first teaser trailer about Det. Corcoran (Weston-Jones) seeking justice for those living in the Five Points area of New York City in 1865 will air during tomorrow's premiere of Doctor Who on BBC America, so be sure to tune in.
According to the BBC America website, "The trailer features an Iron and Wine cover of the 1854 song "Hard Times Come Again No More," which you can hear exclusively at RollingStone.com NOW!"
Here's a refresher from my first review about Copper (Click the link for the full text):
I was really looking forward to the premiere of Copper, and I wasn't disappointed. It's not often that one episode can provide such insight into so many characters, but that's what we got with "Surviving Death."
Because the case hit so close to home for Detective Kevin Corcoran, there was very little time wasted in discovering to what lengths he would got to solve a case, what his friends and colleagues thought of him and what his determined and moral investigative techniques inspired in those he met along the way.
Corcoran is a man, above everything. Needing the comfort of a woman, he isn't above seeking it at the local brothel. He chooses a brothel run by a smart business woman who doesn't exploit the situation for her own gain and remains true to that one woman, Eva. His partner and friend, Francis Macguire also frequents the establishment but Molly doesn't have the same soft spot for him that Eva has for Corcoran. She's always leaning in for a kiss in the hopes of engaging Corcoran and speaking of him and his missing wife while laying with Francis. It would do her good to be happy with what she has, as Macguire doesn't take well to people talking about Corcoran and his misfortunes. More of that loyalty Corcoran inspires.
