BBC AMERICA RENEWS "COPPER" AHEAD OF SUNDAY'S SEASON ONE FINALE

BBC AMERICA's first original scripted series and the channel's highest-rated drama ever re-commissioned from Cineflix Studios

New York - October 18, 2012 - BBC AMERICA has renewed its first original scripted series, COPPER, for a second season, ahead of the season one finale this Sunday, October 21 at 10:00pm ET. The channel has re-commissioned the drama with an increased order of 13 episodes from Cineflix Studios.

In making the announcement, Perry Simon, General Manager, Channels, BBC Worldwide America said: "BBC AMERICA's first original scripted series, COPPER, has proven to be a perfect fit for the channel. Our viewers have made it our highest-rated series premiere ever and highest-rated drama series ever. Production led by Tom Fontana, Will Rokos, Barry Levinson and Christina Wayne, along with the cast from both sides of the pond, truly captured the boiling pot that was New York City in 1864. We can't wait to get started on the second season."

From executive producers Academy Award(R)-winner Barry Levinson, Emmy(R)-winner Tom Fontana, Academy Award(R)-nominee Will Rokos and Cineflix Studios President, Christina Wayne, COPPER follows Detective Kevin Corcoran (Tom Weston-Jones), a rugged Irish immigrant cop, as he seeks justice for the powerless in 1864 New York City. The series has been building to this Sunday's explosive finale that will change lives and the city forever. With Confederate terrorists threatening to destroy the city as they know it, unexpected traitors will be revealed and once air-tight bonds will be broken beyond repair.

The series has received a warm reception from critics including "four stars" from the New York Daily News. The Los Angeles Times called it an "impressive piece of work" - San Francisco Chronicle said "COPPER is gold" - and Entertainment Weekly commented the "premiere hums with menace." The fresh young cast has also received recognition including TV Guide Magazine proclaiming: "Cheers to Tom Weston-Jones for his star-making turn in BBC AMERICA's COPPER."

Since its premiere in August, COPPER continues to be BBC AMERICA's highest-rated drama ever, delivering over a million total viewers each week. On Sunday, August 19 at 10:00pm ET, the series premiere delivered 1.805million total viewers and a cumulative 2.754 million total viewers in Live+7 Day.

"COPPER is an ambitious series and its success is truly a testament to Tom Fontana, Barry Levinson and the creative voices that worked on the production," said Christina Wayne, Cineflix Studios President. "We're absolutely delighted to partner again with BBC AMERICA, Tom and Barry. We look forward to working together to make the second season even more compelling."

COPPER is a Cineflix (Copper) Inc. production in association with BBC AMERICA. COPPER is created by Tom Fontana and Will Rokos. Season one executive producers include Levinson, Fontana, Rokos, Wayne, Jim Finnerty, Sherri Rufh, Sam Berliner, Sally Catto and Katherine Buck. The production was shot in-studio and on location in Toronto, Canada.

In addition to COPPER returning in 2013, BBC AMERICA's second original scripted series Orphan Black, starring Tatiana Maslany, goes into production this month and will premiere in Spring 2013.
