Fox Picks Up Batman Spinoff Show

Series follows Commissioner James Gordon in his detective days prior to meeting Batman

Following a bidding war, Fox has picked up a Gotham TV series from Warner Bros. and The Mentalist creator Bruno Heller. The series follows Commissioner James Gordon in his detective days prior to meeting Batman and will explore the origins of other Batman allies and villains prior to his involvement on the streets of the titular city. 

 

As opposed to DC Comics/Warner Brothers' Superman, with his long-running Smallville, Batman has been long without a live-action TV series, who has been off the table in recent years as this project gestated.
