Top Coppers (released 19 August 2015) is a British Sitcom, directed by Céìn McGillicuddy, aired on BBC Three and BBC Two.

Contents

Background

Top Coppers follow the adventures of cops John Mahogany (Steen Raskopoulos) and Mitch Rust (John Kearns) as they attempt to rid the fictional world of Justice City from its deranged criminal underworld. They both have red hair (ie copper coloured), giving a double meaning to the show's title.

The universe and its characters are derived from the conventions of American and British cop shows of the 70s and 80s, from Starsky & Hutch to The Professionals, but is set in no specific time or country.

Series 1 (2015)

The first series premiered on 19 August 2015 on BBC Three and ran for 6 episodes which aired on Wednesdays. The first series is currently being repeated on BBC Two on Sundays starting 4 October 2015.
