A Gotham Knights TV series is in the works at The CW from three Batwoman writers.
Gotham Knights is based on the characters created for DC by Bob Kane and Bill Finger. It is not a spinoff of Batwoman, nor is it tied to the upcoming Gotham Knights video game.
In the show, in the wake of Bruce Wayne’s murder, his rebellious adopted son forges an unlikely alliance with the children of Batman’s enemies when they are all framed for killing the Caped Crusader. And as the city’s most wanted criminals, this renegade band of misfits must fight to clear their names. But in a Gotham with no Dark Knight to protect it, the city descends into the most dangerous it’s ever been. However, hope comes from the most unexpected of places as this team of mismatched fugitives will become its next generation of saviors known as the Gotham Knights.
Fiveash and Stoteraux are currently executive producers on Batwoman and their other credits include Gotham, Krypton, and The Vampire Diaries.
Abrams was formerly a writer for Entertainment Weekly. As a TV writer, she has written for Batwoman, Supergirl, and All American.
