The ten-episode, hour-long Batman prequel drama series hails from “Gotham” showrunner Bruno Heller, executive producer/director Danny Cannon and Warner Horizon Scripted TV.

Fletcher will portray a Highland Scotsman and spiralling alcoholic named Dave Boy while Bennett is the posh but highly proficient Bajan playboy Bazza, both lifelong friends of Alfred’s from their army days serving in the same corps.
Production will begin October 22nd at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden in the UK.
