Although the pilot episode won't air on Fox until Monday, September 22, Gotham is shaping up to be one of this fall's most anticipated shows. The network is capitalizing on that buzz by debuting a new featurette that showcases Jada Pinkett Smith's Fish Mooney, a new character created specifically for the series. The actress reveals how excited she is to learn about how iconic villains such as Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin (Robin Taylor), Selina Kyle/Catwoman (Camren Bicondova) and Edward Nygman/The Riddler (Cory Michael Smith) get their start in the corrupt city of Gotham.

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?
Gotham is an origin story of the great DC Comics super villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told. From executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (The Mentalist, Rome), Gotham follows one cop's rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering on the edge of evil and chronicles the birth of one of the most popular super heroes of our time.
