An Alfred Pennyworth TV Series Planned?

We already have a show about a young James Gordon, how about one about a young Alfred Pennyworth?

Bleeding Cool reports that DC Comics has registered a new trademark for what appears to be a new TV series titled “Pennyworth”.

That’s all there is, the most likely suggestion being that the series could focus on Alfred’s younger days before he started working for the Wayne family and helped Bruce Wayne become Batman. Alternatively it could simply be a Batman show from his perspective.

Should it happen that would mean there would be three actors playing the same role concurrently – whomever is cast alongside Jeremy Irons in the films and Sean Pertwee in FOX’s “Gotham”.
