One of the most highly anticipated shows of the Fall Season got a double push last week with high-profile publicity appearances at both the Television Critics Association semi-annual convention and the massive annual San Diego ComicCon. Set to premiere in September from Fox, GOTHAM is an action-adventure series centered on the origin story of BATMAN as well as the cadre of villains that eventually became such a large part of his legacy. Produced by DANNY CANNON (NIKITA), the series stars BEN McKENZIE, DONAL LOGUE, ROBIN LORD TAYLOR and JADA PINKETT SMITH.
Sitting down with reporters last week to promote the show, JADA PINKETT SMITH talked about her original thoughts regarding the show and her feeling that the ComicCon crowd would be a deciding factor in the series’ success.
GOTHAM premieres 9/22 on Fox.
