Hong Kong – Before any other broadcaster in Asia, WarnerTV will offer audiences the chance to see Season One of Gotham. The series will premiere this autumn in the U.S. and then fast-tracked to Asian screens exclusively on WarnerTV.
Produced by Warner Bros. Television, Gotham is the origins 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), this one-hour drama follows one cop’s rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering on the edge of evil. It also chronicles the genesis of Batman, the most popular superhero of our time. The series focuses on an urban environment that is the spawning ground of the world’s most iconic villains: Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler and The Joker.
Marianne Lee, Vice President – Network, General Entertainment, Turner International Asia Pacific, said: “Gotham offers audiences excitement, intrigue and action, and will be an ideal addition to our programming line-up. This drama series is exactly the kind of compelling content that makes WarnerTV so popular, and showcases the high-production values and great storytelling that we’ve come to expect from the world’s number one television and movie studio. We know that audiences in Asia will love it, and we’re really pleased to be offering Gotham so soon after it airs in the U.S.”
