Batman Inspired TV Series GOTHAM in Development at FOX

Warner Bros. has teamed up with FOX to develop a Batman-inspired TV series called Gotham. According to Deadline, the story will "explore the roots of Commissioner James Gordon, a regular figure in Batman tales, and the villains that put Gotham on the map." Gordon is a detective with the Gotham City Police Department in the series, which takes place before Batman enters the picture. 

The series is being developed by Bruno Heller (The Mentalist), it has a series commitment at FOX, and the pilot has been put on the fast track to production. 

The character was played by Gary Oldman in Christopher Nolan's trilogy, and it will be interesting to see who they get to play him in this series. This is an exciting show with a ton of potential, and I hope it lives up to it! I'm excited about this one--it could be awesome!
