Talk about putting the Bomb in Bombshell.
Call it NYPD Blue: The Copper Years.
The most surprising thing about BBC America's heavily hyped, hugely ambitious first original scripted series, Copper -- which follows the exploits of a New York city detective who patrols the streets of Lower Manhattan circa 1864 -- isn't that 19th century police work was so different than it is today: it's that the cop show formula seems to remain the same, no matter the era. Brought to you by creative team responsible for the late, great police drama Homicide: Life on the Street (that would be Tom Fontana, who co-created the show, and Barry Levinson who is on board as the executive producer), Copper may take place in the past, but it mostly sticks to contemporary genre rules.
Well, that was quick!
A record (I guess) six ABC-related news bites today... and while two of them involve Grey's Anatomy, none of them have anything to do with an actor leaving! Gotta take your wins where you can.
