Gotham puts the spotlight on a young Detective Jim Gordon following the murder of Bruce Wayne’s parents, and focuses on both of them and younger versions of some of Batman’s most iconic villains.

It was announced late last night that Fox had given Gotham a  full series order, meaning that the network has committed to a full run of episodes, and not just the pilot which was filmed earlier this year.

The first trailer for Gotham aired during tonight’s premiere of 24: Live Another Day in the US and it can be seen below. The cinematic trailer for the series offers up a look at the relationship between the young Gordon and Wayne, as well as the likes of Catwoman, The Penguin and Poison Ivy!

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.
