Gotham TV Series to Air in Canada

Oh Canada! Oh, how I wish you were my home and native land. I’m not overly patriotic nor do I hate Americans. We are who are and I have pride in some of our accomplishments, but I would be lying if I didn’t see Canada as the sought after girl next door. But, rather than continue on extolling Canada, let me get to the Batman news, eh?

Looks like the Gotham TV series has found a home in Canada and that home is CTV. Who would have guessed, right?  Unfortunately, this piece of non-news gets even less informative when I tell you that there are no details regarding its premiere date and/or CTV’s schedule for it.


Regardless, here’s CTV’s synopsis for the upcoming drama series starring Ben McKenzie as James Gordon and Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock:

Before there was Batman, there was GOTHAM. 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. With Ben McKenzie (SOUTHLAND) in the key role as Detective James Gordon, GOTHAM also stars Jada Pinkett Smith (HAWTHORNE) and Donal Logue (LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT). Executive producers are Primetime EMMY Award-nominee Danny Cannon (CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION), Bruno Heller (THE MENTALIST), and John Stephens (GOSSIP GIRL).

Gotham is set to air stateside Mondays at 8PM on Fox, this coming Fall.

Editor’s note: Canada is a lovely place you should all come and visit. It’s like a nicer version of Minnesota.
