Fox is jumping on the superhero bandwagon.
On Tuesday (Sept. 24), the network ordered “Gotham” — a drama based on the DC Comics character of Commissioner Gordon from “Batman” lore — straight to series, Deadline reports.
From Warner Bros. TV and executive-produced by “The Mentalist’s” Bruno Heller (who is also developing a sci-fi Mars drama on The CW), the one-hour drama series is described as “the origin stories of Commissioner James Gordon and the villains that made Gotham famous.”
The series will take place when Gordon was still a detective with the Gotham City Police Department, prior to when he met the caped crusader … meaning the superhero will not be part of the series.
