It’s been reported that Warner Bros. and Fox have begun negotiations for a TV show called “Gotham”. As we previously reported Warner Bros. has been pitching an idea of a Gotham City cop show based off the successful ‘Gotham Central’ DC comic.
Fox is looking to Bruno Heller, creator of CBS’ “The Mentalist” to handle all duties. 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. Heller is writing the script and will exec produce. Fox has given a series commitment to the project, which is not quite an on-air order but a hefty down payment that puts “Gotham” on the fast track to pilot production.
