Gotham creator Bruno Heller is getting back into the Batman business.

Alfred is portrayed on Gotham by Sean Pertwee, who won't be involved with Pennyworth. The series will serve as a prequel to Gotham and will follow Alfred as a former British SAS soldier who forms a secret company and then goes to work for Thomas Wayne in 1960s London.

"As genuine fans of these classic DC characters, as well as the incredibly talented Bruno Heller and Danny Cannon, we couldn't be more excited to make Epix the home of this series", said Michael Wright, President, Epix. EPIX has just done a straight to series order for Pennyworth, the story of Batman's butler, Alfred Pennyworth, and how he came to work for the Wayne family.

PENNYWORTH comes on the heels of EPIX's recent pick up 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.

Heller and his partner Danny Cannon also put out a statement, saying that they are equally as stoked to be working on the project with Epix.
