Fox orders TV series on Jim Gordon?

19_JimGordonDeadline is reporting that Fox has ordered the development of “Gotham“, a television series that will center a young Jim Gordon prior to becoming Commissioner of the Gotham City Police Department and even before he meets the masked hero known as Batman. The series is reportedly being created by Bruno Heller, who created the hit CBS crime drama “The Mentalist“, and will be produced by Warner Bros. Television. Should Fox pick up the series in full, it is scheduled to being airing next year alongside the planned debut of the new series based around “The Flash“.
