'Copper' switches production team


BBC America's 'Copper' was a series that totally caught me out of the blue - I had not heard of it before the first time I posted news for TV Rage about it. The opinion I got from our readers was it was well worth looking into - as soon as it drops in price on Blu Ray, I definitely will be checking it out.

In preparation for its second season, the program announced today that Brad van Arragon, who oversaw production of the first season but left at its conclusion, was going to be replaced by Mike Frislev and Chad Oakes, the co-founders of Nomadic Pictures (A Calgary, Alberta, Canada-based company).

Cineflix Studios, the producer of the program (with BBC America) began talking with the duo last fall about coming aboard.

The second season of 'Copper' is scheduled to begin filming in Toronto soon. Thirteen episodes have been ordered for the season, which will begin airing this year.

Nomadic Pictures also works on AMC's 'Hell on Wheels' series.

'Copper' was created by Will Rokos, Barry Levinson and Tom Fontana. It takes place in the Five Points District of New York City during the Civil War and stars Tom Weston-Jones as Kevin Corcoran, a detective.

Decent series, but in comparison with Ripper Street or Hell on Wheels it doesn't quite push enough. Maybe it lacks some drive. Maybe not all characters detailed enough. But i hopeful that some production reshuffling will have some influence on creative team to push wee bit harder. Anyways, good TV all and all.
