Gotham Central is a long running comic book, about the police department in Gotham city. Fans have long called for a tv series and, with Marvel’s agents of shield launching it seems that fox have listened. Sort of.
The American network have committed to making a tv series about the origins of Commissioner Gordon.
The series will be written by Bruno Heller, former show runner for The Mentalist.
Warner Bros and DC have been in the television business before, with the long running Smallville and now CW’s Arrow, so it will be interesting to see how/if this ties in to the DC universe that’s being built up by Zack Snyder.
Not much is known about the storyline this early on, but a brief description for the series says that in addition to showing the history behind Gordon, it will focus on the villains of Gotham City.
