Pennyworth: Batman Prequel Series about Bruce Wayne’s Butler

Epix will produce a series, Pennyworth, a Batman prequel about the early life of Bruce Wayne’s butler and surrogate father Alfred Pennyworth.

Warner Horizon Scripted Television and “Gotham” executive producers Bruno Heller and Danny Cannon will make Pennyworth, the story of the title character’s time as a former special-forces officer in London, working for Bruce Wayne’s father, Thomas Wayne.

The series will not be directly related to “Gotham,” where Pennyworth is played by Sean Pertwee, but will give a new take on the character.

Epix President Michael Wright said: “As genuine fans of these classic DC characters, as well as the incredibly talented Bruno Heller and Danny Cannon, we couldn’t be more excited to make Epix the home of this series. We can’t wait to work with Bruno and Danny – along with Peter Roth, Susan Rovner, Brett Paul and the team at Warner Horizon – on this fantastic origin story.”

“Gotham” is set to end its run on Fox with a 13-episode final season in 2018-19.
