The official word on the Jim Gordon-centric show reads:

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.

Growing up in Gotham City’s surrounding suburbs, James Gordon (Ben McKenzie, “Southland,” “The O.C.”) romanticized the city as a glamorous and exciting metropolis where his late father once served as a successful district attorney. Now, two weeks into his new job as a Gotham City detective and engaged to his beloved fiancée, Barbara Kean (Erin Richards, Open Grave, “Breaking In”), Gordon is living his dream – even as he hopes to restore the city back to the pure version he remembers it was as a kid.

Brave, honest and ready to prove himself, the newly-minted detective is partnered with the brash, but shrewd police legend Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue, “Sons of Anarchy,” “Terriers,” “Vikings,” “Copper”), as the two stumble upon the city’s highest-profile case ever: the murder of local billionaires Thomas and Martha Wayne. At the scene of the crime, Gordon meets the sole survivor: the Waynes’ hauntingly intense 12-year-old son, Bruce (David Mazouz, “Touch”), toward whom the young detective feels an inexplicable kinship. Moved by the boy’s profound loss, Gordon vows to catch the killer.

As he navigates the often-underhanded politics of Gotham’s criminal justice system, Gordon will confront imposing gang boss Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith, The Matrix films, “HawthoRNe,” Collateral), and many of the characters who will become some of fiction’s most renowned, enduring villains, including a teenaged Selina Kyle/the future Catwoman (acting newcomer Camren Bicondova) and Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor, “The Walking Dead,” Another Earth).

Although the crime drama will follow Gordon’s turbulent and singular rise through the Gotham City police department, led by Police Captain Sarah Essen (Zabryna Guevara, “Burn Notice”), it also will focus on the unlikely friendship Gordon forms with the young heir to the Wayne fortune, who is being raised by his unflappable butler, Alfred (Sean Pertwee, “Camelot,” “Elementary”). It is a friendship that will last them all of their lives, playing a crucial role in helping the young boy eventually become the crusader he’s destined to be.

That pretty much gives you everything you need to know about the show at this point. Danny Cannon will be directing the pilot, which is expected to hit screens towards the middle of this year.

      • Ha! No worries, sir. We all have shows and films like that. It seems like I’m the only person who’s yet to watch a single episode of The Wire.

        Arrow is very much worth your time. The first season was very good but Season 2 has been absolutely stunning now. I’m not sure if you’re a Green Arrow fan or even a DC fan, but so far there’s been appearances from the likes of China White, Merlyn, Shrapnel, Deadshot, Black Canary, Roy Harper, Barry Allen (who’s about to get his own Flash TV show), Sin, Solomon Grundy, Brother Blood, Firefly, Huntress, Dollmaker, Dr. Ivo and freakin’ Deathstroke! There’s likely a load more that I’ve missed too.

      • Lol, haven’t watched The Wire either, don’t worry. I desperately want to see Arrow, especially with the League of Assassins turning up, and the whole mass DC cameos and appearances…. possible connection with Gotham?

      • I’d say links to Gotham are a no at this point. Arrow, like The Flash, is a CW show, so they will tie together. Gotham is over at FOX, plus it only features a 10-year-old Bruce Wayne. The apparent end-game for Gotham is for Bruce to take the cape and cowl, but for now the timelines wouldn’t add up. Would be pretty awesome if that changed down the line.
