Fox has officially ordered Gotham to series.
Based on DC Comics characters, the drama is a Batman prequel that explores the origin stories of the Caped Crusader's eventual ally James Gordon (Benjamin McKenzie), a detective with the Gotham City Police Department, and his battle with the villains who made the city famous.
Written by The Mentalist creator Bruno Heller, who will also executive-produce the project with Nikita's Danny Cannon and John Stephens, Gotham previously had a series commitment at Fox. The series joins the network's previously ordered new drama series Backstrom and Hieroglyph.
Gotham will also star Jada Pinkett Smith, Donal Logue, Sean Pertwee, Robin Lord Taylor, David Mazouz, Erin Richards, Drew Powell, Zabryna Guevara, Camren Bicondova, and Cory Michael Smith.
