New York City in 1864 was no place for a wimp. In BBC America's Copper, the latest collaboration from Oz and Homicide vets Tom Fontana and Barry Levinson, the Civil War-era town is a boiling stew of impoverished immigrants, uptown power brokers, vicious gangs, freed slaves and Confederate spies.
It's a new day for Lifetime as it journeys into uncharted territory with Blood Ties, premiering Sunday at 9 pm/ET. Based on The Blood Books by Tanya Huff, the series follows private investigator Vicki Nelson as she teams up with Henry, a sexy vampire old enough to be her great-great-great-... well, he's very old. Together, they solve supernatural crimes while battling their obvious attraction to each other. There is action, romance and Vicki's ex, who continues to tug at her heart. TVGuide.com took a few moments to chat up series lead Christina Cox.
