HBO Max has given a series commitment to a drama set in the Gotham police department from Matt Reeves and Terrence Winter, Variety has learned.
The untitled series will be set in the world Reeves is creating for the feature film “The Batman,” with the intent being to launch a new Batman universe across multiple platforms. It is said to build on the film’s examination of the anatomy of corruption in Gotham City. It is the first project announced under Reeves’ new overall deal with Warner Bros. Television Group.
Reeves is the writer and director of the 2021 release of The Batman, and Winter is best known for his work on The Sopranos and working on Boardwalk Empire.
This could be an amazing series if done right, god knows the Ed Brubaker-written Gotham Central comic was freaking great.
The Batman is current set for an October 2021 release. I wouldn’t be shocked to see this series hit HBO Max around the same time.
