Set in Batman’s Gotham City but before the time of the iconic hero, FOX’s new show, Gotham, picks up around the time a young Bruce Wayne’s parents are killed. A prequel to Waynes’s life as Batman in the city, the show follows a Detective James Morgan (Ben McKenzie) as he finds his feet in the city about to be preyed upon by some of the franchise’s deadliest villains. Teasing the beginnings of the Riddler, the Penguin, Catwoman and Poison Ivy, their younger selves are set to run riot in Gotham City as Gordon struggles to resolve the murder of Thomas and Martha Wayne. Creator Bruno Heller made his name with HBO’s Rome and The Mentalist on CBS so there is certainly pedigree behind the show, and obvious a ready-made Batman-hungry audience. Gotham will premiere on FOX this fall.
