Gotham is a Fox TV series that takes place in Gotham City before the emergence of Batman. It will follow Detective James Gordon, as he deals with the crime and corruption of Gotham City.
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?
And here's the first pictures of Ben McKenzie (as Jim Gordon), Robin Taylor (as Oswald Cobblepot AKA Penguin), and Donal Logue (as Harvey Bullock)...

Also, this is an interesting look into a possible arc. It's not that big of an event in the Batman universe or anything ...
Also, Bruce Wayne has been cast, and will appear in the show. I hope that it's picked up, but I dread that it's on Fox. They generally suck at these types of shows, and cancel them without giving them enough of a chance. Flashbacks of Firefly are coming to me.
