Pennyworth – A 10 episode miniseries is in the works

In a further fragmenting of the DC brand, MGM-owned premium cable network Epix has ordered a 10-episode, straight-to-series order for Pennyworth, a Batman prequel that will tell the origin story of the caped crusader’s best friend and butler, Alfred Pennyworth.

It is important to note that this is not a Gotham spinoff but an entirely new story exploring Alfred’s origins as a former British SAS soldier who forms a secret company and goes to work with Thomas Wayne (father of Bruce) in 1960’s London. Sean Pertwee, (Alfred on Gotham) is not involved with the new project.
