9. Copper, BBC America, Sundays at 9 p.m., starting Aug. 19

Writer/producer Tom Fontana (Homicide: Life on the Street, Oz, Borgia) is a master at gritty drama, and it's hard to imagine a grittier setting than New York City in the middle of the 1800s. Copper is about policemen working the streets of the notorious Five Points neighborhood in Lower Manhattan in the 1860s — yes, the same crime-infested, feral area made famous in Martin Scorsese's Gangs of New York. With Fontana and Barry Levinson on board, hopes are sky high for the first scripted series on the BBC America network.
