Official synopsis: A new recruit in Captain Sarah Essen's Gotham City Police Department, Detective James Gordon is paired with Harvey Bullock to solve one of Gotham's most high-profile cases ever: the murder of Thomas and Martha Wayne. During his investigation, Gordon meets the Waynes' son, Bruce, now in the care of his butler Alfred, which further compels Gordon to catch the killer. Along the way, Gordon must confront gang boss Fish Mooney, as well as many of Gotham's future villains, such as Selina Kyle and Oswald Cobblepot. Eventually, Gordon is forced to form an unlikely friendship with Bruce, one that will help shape the boy's future in becoming the Dark Knight.
The pilot of "Gotham" was put out by Warner Bros. Television, with The Mentalist's Bruno Heller writing the pilot, and Emmy nominee Danny Cannon (CSI, Nikita) is director and executive produced. John Stephens will also serve as an exec producer on the series.
