Remember when the Teen Titans GO to the Movies spoofed the idea of an Alfred Pennyworth movie?
Yeah it was a funny gag…well the gag is now a reality. For real people. We are seriously getting an Alfred origin story series.
Bruno Heller (Gotham, The Mentalist, Rome) serves as executive producer/writer and Danny Cannon serves as executive producer/director (Gotham, CSI series). From Warner Horizon Scripted Television, DC origin story Pennyworth is a ten-episode, one-hour drama series based on DC characters created by Bob Kane with Bill Finger. It follows Bruce Wayne’s legendary butler, Alfred Pennyworth (Jack Bannon), a former British SAS soldier who forms a security company and goes to work with Thomas Wayne (Ben Aldridge), Bruce’s billionaire father, in 1960’s London.
Now we just need an origin series for this guy:
Bibbo, Superman’s always drunk bar owner friend…
