Warner Bros. Television and Fox have announced two new additions to their upcoming series “Gotham” which include 13-year-old “Touch” actor David Mazouz as the young Bruce Wayne and Camren Bicondova as the teenage Selina Kyle (aka Catwoman).
For the series, Bruce is described as “not a playboy-by-day, vigilante-by-night, but a preteen who has been sentenced to a solitary life after his parents’ tragic murders,” while Selina is described as “a teen orphan who is suspicious and wholly unpredictable. A skilled pickpocket and street thief, [she] is pretty dangerous when cornered.”
Based upon characters published by DC Comics, “Gotham” is a drama exploring the origin stories of Commissioner James Gordon and the villains that made Gotham famous. Series regulars cast to date are Ben McKenzie as Detective James Gordon, Donal Logue as Detective Harvey Bullock, Zabryna Guevara as Captain Essen, Erin Richards as Gordon’s fiancee Barbara Kean, Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth, Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot (aka The Penguin), Drew Powell as Butch Gilzean, and Jada Pinkett-Smith as Fish Mooney.
Bruno Heller (“The Mentalist,” “Rome”) wrote the pilot script and will serve as executive producer on the series. Danny Cannon (“CSI,” “Nikita”) will direct and executive produce the pilot, which already has a series commitment and is expected to air this fall.
