Batman Prequel Series About Alfred Coming From 'Gotham' Producer

And this takes place in a different universe from Gotham, which recently got renewed for a fifth and final season, so don't expect Sean Pertwee to be playing the character again.

Epix has handed out a 10-episode, straight-to-series order to a new project from Bruno Heller revolving around Batman's fan-favorite b utler, Alfred Pennyworth. The drama marks a reunion for Heller with Gotham's Danny Cannon, who will exec produce and direct the pilot as he did with the Fox Batman origin story.

It will be put out by Epix in the U.S., and their president Michael Wright said: "As genuine fans of these classic DC characters, as well as the incredibly talented Bruno Heller and Danny Cannon, we couldn't be more excited to make Epix the home of this series". To The Movies trailer, Pennyworth will chart the days of Alfred before he is responsible for Bruce's care.

The series will focus on Bruce Wayne's long-suffering butler, friend, and companion, Alfred Pennyworth and it's going to look at his past (I think nowadays it's called an origin, but he's a butler for Christ's sake, not a mutant) and how he came to look after Batman - sorry - "Master Wayne".

According to the report, Pennyworth will examine Alfred's time as an ex-British Special Air Service (SAS) soldier who creates a clandestine company in London for Thomas Wayne during the 1960s.

The ten-episode first season of Pennyworth is set to premiere in 2019.

Meanwhile, "Gotham" - which films on location throughout NY - was just renewed for a fifth and final season after Fox canceled a number of its original scripted series. Television Group, Warner Horizon Scripted Television was founded in 2006 and is one of the entertainment industry's leading producers of dramatic and comedic programming for the cable and subscription/on-demand marketplace.
