Yet another comic book series will be coming to television-- but not until 2014. Deadline broke the news earlier today that FOX has officially committed to Gotham from Bruno Heller and Warner Bros. TV with a straight-to-series order.
Gotham will explore the origin stories of Commissioner James Gordon and the villains who made Gotham City famous. In Gotham, Gordon is still a detective with the Gotham City Police Department and has yet to meet Batman, who will not be part of the series. It will therefore feature the earlier days of the character, not unlike The CW's Smallville or Arrow (both also from Warner Bros. TV).
