Giri/Haji creator Joe Barton is heading to Gotham to run the HBO Max feature.
This comes after a departure from Terence Winter who exited the show back in November. In addition to serving as showrunner, Barton will also executive produce.
Matt Reeves revealed that the series is a prequel to his Batman Year Two movie, with the show set in Batman Year One when a “masked vigilante…starts to unsettle the city”. The series will hold a magnifying glass to the city’s corruption that “goes back many years” and is told from the point-of-view of a crooked cop.
