With filming fully underway for the Gotham series that got the straight to series order for Fox after a sizable bidding war, Warner Bros. TV is starting to slip out a few images since they know on-set images are starting to pop up. The first one that we’re getting here is a pretty well done image of Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock, the hardened but weary long time cop who is the “rough-around-the-edges partner and mentor. Plays loose with police procedure, but he gets results… and he does it with old-school, forceful panache.” With the character dating back to 1974, there’s been a lot of interpretations over the years and Logue looks to capture the spirit and flavor of the character well with this one.
Plot concept: Growing up in Gotham City’s surrounding suburbs, JAMES GORDON (Ben McKenzie, “Southland,” “The O.C.”) romanticized the city as a glamorous and exciting metropolis where his late father once served as a successful district attorney. Now, two weeks into his new job as a Gotham City detective and engaged to his beloved fiancée, BARBARA KEAN (Erin Richards, “Open Grave,” “Breaking In”), Gordon is living his dream – even as he hopes to restore the city back to the pure version he remembers it was as a kid.
Brave, honest and ready to prove himself, the newly-minted detective is partnered with the brash, but shrewd police legend HARVEY BULLOCK (Donal Logue, “Sons of Anarchy,” “Terriers,” “Vikings,” “Copper”), as the two stumble upon the city’s highest-profile case ever: the murder of local billionaires Thomas and Martha Wayne. At the scene of the crime, Gordon meets the sole survivor: the Waynes’ hauntingly intense 12-year-old son, BRUCE (David Mazouz, “Touch”), toward whom the young detective feels an inexplicable kinship. Moved by the boy’s profound loss, Gordon vows to catch the killer.
