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

battle to two Civil War compatriots – the wayward son of a wealthy
industrialist and an African-American physician who secretly assists
the forensic investigations – Corcoran is thrust into the
contrasting worlds of elegant and corrupt Fifth Avenue, and the
emerging African-American community in Northern Manhattan. The three
men share a secret from the battlefield that inextricably links
their lives forever.
