The one-hour crime drama explores the origin story of eventual police commissioner James Gordon, who was made famous in the “Batman” tales, and the rogue gallery of villains that made the city of Gotham infamous. Logue’s Bullock is Gordon’s partner and mentor, a rough-around-the-edges old school detective who plays loose with police procedure.
The cast also includes Ben McKenzie as Gordon, Jada Pinkett Smith as sadistic, street smart gangster Fish Mooney and Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot (better known as the Penguin).
“Gotham,” which has a series commitment order from Fox and is based on characters published by DC Entertainment, is executive-produced by Bruno Heller and Danny Cannon for Warner Bros TV. Cannon is directing the pilot episode from a script by Heller.
The next character reveal will be shown Friday on “Gotham’s” social media pages.
