Danny Cannon to Direct GOTHAM Pilot Centering on BATMAN’s James Gordon

We haven’t heard much about the Batman/Commissioner Gordon series Gotham since Fox won a bidding war for it, but now we know that Danny Cannon will direct and executive produce the pilot. Scripted by Bruno Heller (The Mentalist), Gotham “explores the origin stories of Commissioner James Gordon and the villains who made Gotham City famous.” The show, which has a series commitment and penalty, takes place in a Gotham plagued with crime before the arrival of Batman.

Cannon, who had some rough experiences in the movie world having directed Judge Dredd and I Still Know What You Did Last Summer, has fared well in the television landscape. He’s directed the pilots for CSI, Dark Blue, and more recently, The Tomorrow People. Cannon is currently filming the TV movie, The Lottery.
