Fox has landed a deal for Gotham, a TV drama series that explores the origins of DC Comics’ Commissioner James Gordon of Batman fame and the villains that made Gotham their home. The news comes as Fox won out on a bidding war for the Warner Bros. TV property (conveniently timed to release just after the premiere of Marvel’s foray into television with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.; read Evan’s review here). Fox has also made a series commitment for Gotham, scripted by Bruno Heller (The Mentalist). Hit the jump for more on Gotham and for a look at past appearances of Gordon on the small screen.
