Lee Tergesen plays Philomen Keating, a criminal mastermind in vice-laden 1865 New York City.

Keating is a highly intelligent, charismatic and utterly ruthless counterfeiter. His character personifies a new type of criminal that emerged in the Civil War era: professional counterfeiters who exploited the new federal "greenback" currency as a route to fortune.

TV Guide wrote: "Keating is brainy, dapper, charismatic ... and an utterly ruthless psychopath. When his people take over the sixth precinct police headquarters, the body count starts to rise."

"Copper" is a BBC America original series that was co-created by "Oz" mastermind Tom Fontana and Will Rokos.

The series follows Kevin Corcoran (Tom Weston-Jones), an Irish-American detective -- or "copper" -- who has returned from the Civil War to find his wife missing and his daughter dead. He looks to uncover the truth while seeking justice for the powerless in the notorious immigrant neighborhood of Five Points.
