GOTHAM Showrunner Working on Series Based on Alfred Pennyworth”

Sean Pertwee, who now plays Alfred in Gotham, will not be involved with this series and casting for the part hasn't begun yet.

Bruno Heller, creator of Fox's Batman prequel, "Gotham", is headed even further back into Bat-history on a new show for Epix.

Sean Pertwee, who plays Alfred Pennyworth on Gotham, is not involved in Pennyworth and casting has not yet begun, but the show will take place in 1960s London and will explore the origins of the former British SAS soldier who forms a secret company and goes to work with billionaire Thomas Wayne. Danny Cannon, who directed the pilot episode of Gotham, will also serve as an executive producer and direct the pilot. Epix is targeting a 2019 premiere date. Actor Sean Pertwee now plays Alfred Pennyworth to a young Bruce Wayne on Gotham but this series will go even further back in the character's history. "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", stated Epix President Michael Wright. The network's dark comedy Get Shorty is set to kick off its second season this summer starring Ray Romano and Chris O'Dowd. FOX recently ordered a fifth and final season for Gotham, which will revolve around the transformation of young Bruce Wayne into Batman.

The series, which was given a straight-to-series order, is a Warner Horizon Scripted Television production.

Pennyworth comes on the heels of Epix's pickup of ABC Signature Studios' drama series Godfather of Harlem, starring and executive produced by Oscar victor Forest Whitaker, with Chris Brancato and Paul Eckstein (Narcos) serving as showrunners.
