jimgordonOne of Batman‘s greatest allies, Commissioner Jim Gordon, will grace television in the show simply entitled Gotham. Before you get your hopes up, no, Batman will not appear in the show. It will follow Gordon’s rise in the ranks as he tries to clean up the streets.

I can’t say I’m too excited about it. There’s a chance it’ll be another cop procedural, but using Batman’s mythos as the backdrop. There’s also the fact that Gordon’s attempts to fix Gotham is an uphill battle that he doesn’t come close to accomplishing until Batman’s arrival.

Surprisingly, Gotham won’t air on the CW with Arrow. Instead, Gotham will air on the network known for putting a lot of faith in their shows: Fox. By which I mean it will probably be cancelled halfway into the first season.
