Missy Peregrym Takes Lead Role in Canadian Cop Drama Copper

Reaper's Missy Peregrym Joins New Cop Drama

Canadian actress Missy Peregrym — last seen as Andi on Reaper — is showing her home country some love: she's just taken the lead in the cop drama Copper, a Canadian production that will air in the US on ABC.

Copper is described as a Grey's Anatomy-type journey through the world of rookie cops. Amusingly, this character has the same name as Peregrym's Reaper role — though this one's Andy, not Andi. As The Hollywood Reporter puts it:

[Andy McNally is] 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.

I wonder if she has a one-night stand with her soon-to-be boss, all Grey's-style?

Copper will start production soon in Toronto, and there's no word yet on when it will air on ABC. But does it sound like a show you'd check out? Will the world of rookie cops make a good primetime soap?
