COPPER, BBC America
Created by Tom Fontana and Will Rokos the series initially premiered to strong ratings in August 2012, however the show has since then struggled to maintain viewership. "Copper" will air its series finale on Sept. 22.

At the center, Detective Kevin Corcoran struggles to tame the wartime metropolis while wrestling with personal demons, including the Betrayal of his wife and best friend. And when Tammany Hall's outspoken General Brendan Donovan, returns from the Civil War to restore law and order in the Sixth Ward, loyalties will be bought and sold both uptown and in the slums of the Five Points as Corcoran, and those around him, fight to find their places in an unforgiving city.
