On Gotham’s official website, the studio has released the (incredibly long) synopsis for their highly anticipated new TV series. Read part of the synopsis below and head over to Gotham’s official website to read the rest:
Everyone knows the name Commissioner Gordon. He is one of the crime world’s greatest foes, a man whose reputation is synonymous with law and order. But what is known of Gordon’s story and his rise from rookie detective to Police Commissioner? What did it take to navigate the multiple layers of corruption that secretly ruled Gotham City, the spawning ground of the world’s most iconic villains? And what circumstances created them – the larger-than-life personas who would become Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler, Two-Face and The Joker?
GOTHAM is an origin story of the great DC Comics super villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told. From executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (“The Mentalist,” “Rome”), GOTHAM follows one cop’s rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering on the edge of evil and chronicles the birth of one of the most popular super heroes of our time.
Southland actor Ben McKenzie will star as Jim Gordon in the Batman-based TV series, and Fox recently announced who will be playing The Penguin, Alfred, Captain Essen and Gordon’s fiancée Barbara Kean.
Robin Lord Taylor, who had a small role in The Walking Dead, will be playing Oswald Cobblepot – better known as The Penguin. Camelot actor Sean Pertwee will play Bruce Wayne’s beloved butler, Alfred, while Zabryna Guevara will portray Gordon’s police Captain.
Jada Pinkett Smith will be playing the character Fish Mooney, “an imposing, hotheaded and notoriously sadistic gangster boss and nightclub owner with street smarts and almost extra-sensory abilities to read people like an open book who is not one to be crossed.”
Being Human’s Erin Richards has been cast as Gordon’s fiancée, Barbara Kean. There are also reports that casting announcements for The Riddler and Catwoman may be announced as well.
Gotham seems to be moving forward now that the majority of the roles have been cast. Be on the lookout for more to follow now that Fox is starting its promotional push.
