We're inching closer and closer to one of the most highly-anticipated debuts of the fall TV season, when Gotham airs its pilot episode on Monday, September 22nd at 8 PM ET on Fox. To help fans pass the time, Fox has released a trailer and two featurettes highlighting James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) and Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith).
The trailer gives us a new look at Gordon's better half, Barbara Kean (Erin Richards), who claims that he is the most honest man in Gotham, while James promises Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) that he will find his parents' murderer. We also get two behind-the-scenes featurettes where Ben McKenzie and Jada Pinkett Smith discuss their complex characters.
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.
