Gotham

Gotham

Before there was Batman, there was GOTHAM. Everyone knows the name of Commissioner Gordon. But what of his rise from rookie detective to Police Commissioner? What did it take to navigate the layers of corruption in Gotham City, the spawning ground of the world’s most iconic villains? GOTHAM is the origin story of the great DC Comics Super-Villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told. From executive producer Bruno Heller, this crime drama follows one cop’s rise through a dangerously corrupt city and chronicles the genesis of one of the most popular super heroes of our time. Although the crime drama follows Gordon’s turbulent and singular career, it also focuses on his unlikely friendship with the young heir to the Wayne fortune – a friendship that will play a crucial role in helping the young boy eventually become the crusader he’s destined to be.
