fox orders gotham series Fox orders 'Gotham'   'Batman's' Commissioner Gordon origin series

Fox is jumping on the superhero bandwagon.

On Tuesday (Sept. 24), the network ordered “Gotham” — a drama based on the DC Comics character of Commissioner Gordon from “Batman” lore — straight to series, Deadline reports.

From Warner Bros. TV and executive-produced by “The Mentalist’s” Bruno Heller (who is also developing a sci-fi Mars drama on The CW), the one-hour drama series is described as “the origin stories of Commissioner James Gordon and the villains that made Gotham famous.” 

The series will take place when Gordon was still a detective with the Gotham City Police Department, prior to when he met the caped crusader … meaning the superhero will not be part of the series. 

What villains would you like to see from Batman’s Rogues Gallery on “Gotham?” Let us know in the comments.
