BBC AMERICA’S HIT ORIGINAL SERIES COPPER TO RETURN JUNE 23

 

TEASER TRAILER FEATURING MUSIC BY IRON AND WINE TO AIR TOMORROW

 

New YorkFriday, March 29, 2013 – BBC AMERICA announced today, hit original series COPPER, will premiere Sunday, June 23, 10:00pm ET/PT. The first teaser trailer, featuring music by Iron and Wine, will be revealed tomorrow during BBC AMERICA’s broadcast of Doctor Who at 8:00pm ET/PT.  Set in 1865 New York City, Tom Weston-Jones returns as Detective Kevin Corcoran, an Irish-American cop who seeks justice for the powerless in the notorious Five Points.  Donal Logue (Sons Of Anarchy, Max Payne), Eamonn Walker (Chicago Fire, Oz), Lee Tergesen (The Big C, Oz) and Andrew Howard (Hatfield & McCoys, The Hangover) join the cast for the second season.

 

The new trailer features an Iron and Wine cover of the 1854 song “Hard Times Come Again No More” written by Stephen Foster.  Commissioned by BBC AMERICA, singer-songwriter, Sam Beam – the artist behind Iron and Wine – recorded the classic American song for the period drama and gave it a modern edge.  RollingStone.com has the Exclusive Stream of the track today.

 

“We wanted to find a song in the classic American musical cannon that still resonated today, but also spoke to the world of COPPER, and give it a modern twist,” says Matt Stein, SVP Marketing, Promotions and Creative, BBC AMERICA.  “Sam’s ethereal voice has exactly the perfect blend of soul and sorrow, which conveys what’s in store for our characters in the second season.”
Returning cast includes Kyle Schmid (Arrow, Being Human), Anastasia Griffith (Once Upon A Time, Damages) Franka Potente (American Horror Story, The Bourne Supremacy), Ato Essandoh (Django Unchained, Elementary), Kevin Ryan (Tripping Tommy, RAW), Dylan Taylor (Covert Affairs, Charlie Bartlett), Kiara Glasco (Haven, I’ll Follow You Down) and Tessa Thompson (For Colored Girls, Heroes).
