The Hollywood Reporter says that “Reaper” co-star Missy Peregrym will play lead of Canadian cop drama “Copper,” which will air on ABC.
The show centers on Andy McNally (Peregrym), a newly minted cop fresh from the academy and the daughter of a homicide detective. She is anxious about her first day on the job, which doesn’t go as well as she had wished.
ABC acquired “Copper” in April from Canadian producer E1.
Filming on the series, which has a 13-episode order, is scheduled to begin shortly in Toronto.
