Gotham is an American crime television series developed by Bruno Heller, based on characters appearing in and published by DC Comics in their Batman franchise, primarily those of James Gordon and Bruce Wayne.
As originally conceived, the series would have served as a straightforward story of Gordon’s early days on the Gotham City police force. The idea evolved not only to include the Wayne character, but also to tell the origin stories of several Batman villains.
Gotham centers around a new recruit in the Gotham City Police Department, James Gordon , is paired with veteran detective Harvey Bullock to solve one of Gotham’s highest-profile cases ever: the murders of Thomas and Martha Wayne. During his investigation, Gordon meets the Waynes’ son Bruce (Mazouz), now in the care of his butler Alfred Pennyworth. Meeting the younger Wayne further compels Gordon to catch the mysterious killer. Along the way, Gordon becomes involved with Gotham’s Mafia families and associates including gangster Fish Mooney, crime lord Carmine Falcone, and Italian mob boss Salvatore Maroni. 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 first season order originally consisted of 16 episodes, but was later extended to a total of 22.
