"Gotham" is an upcoming superhero series to be aired on Fox channel from 22 September.

The series is said to reveal the early life of Batman and his evolution as a superhero.

The upcoming series will focus on the origin story of DC Comics Super-Villains as well as vigilantes that has never been told and will revolve around the events taking place at the underworld criminal city "Gotham", according to Fox.

The series will follow detective James Gordon played by Ben McKenzie (Southland, The OC) and a high profile murder case of billionaires Thomas and Martha Wayne.

The young and enthusiastic Gordon joins Gotham city detective team with an aim to restore the criminal city into a glamorous and exciting metropolis. As the story evolves, Gordon will team up with a shrewd and brash police legend Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue) to investigate the high profile murder case.

During his investigation, Gordon meets 12-year-old Bruce (David Mazouz), who is the sole survivor of the incident. He promises the young boy that he will find the culprits and gradually, the two become great friends. It is their deep relationship that eventually turns the boy into a crusader.

Though the series revolves around the lives of several superheroes, including The Joker, Catwoman, Two-Face, The Riddler and The Penguin, "Gotham" does not portray any superhero.

"That's the situation the show is all about — is how do you deal with crime of this level when there are no superheroes, when there's just ordinary, mortal men and women trying to solve these issues. It's as much about the hope and the struggle that they're engaged in as waiting for a savior. It's about men and women, not about superheroes, and to me that's the more interesting story," Bruno Heller, creator, writer and executive producer told The Hollywood Reporter.

"Gotham" is all set to hit the TV screens with a unique story line from Monday.
