LOS ANGELES — Fox says it's ordering a series that delves into the early career of future "Batman" police commissioner James Gordon.

Producer Warner Bros. Television said Monday that the show called "Gotham" also will include untold tales of DC Comics villains and introduce a new character, Fish Mooney.

Jada Pinkett Smith will star as Mooney, with Ben McKenzie playing Gordon during his years as a detective.

Other cast members include Donal Logue as detective Harvey Bullock and David Mazouz as young Bruce Wayne, the future Batman.

An air date hasn't been announced, but a Warner Bros. spokesman says "Gotham" is planned for the 2014-15 season.
