Joe Barton Boards ‘The Batman’ TV Series After Terence Winter Releases – Deadline

Giri / Haji Creator Joe Barton heads to Gotham to take over showrunning duties on upcoming HBO Max The batman TV shows.

The British writer joined the series as showrunner and executive producer after Terence Winter left in November.

It was understood that the Boardwalk Empire The creator left the series, which is a companion to Matt Reeves’ feature film Batman, over creative differences.

Barton is best known for creating a crime drama in Tokyo and London Giri / Haji for Netflix and the BBC. He has also written on AMC and the sci-fi drama Channel 4 Humans and epic drama Netflix and BBC Troy: the fall of a city. Other projects include Sky thriller Extinction and an adaptation of Sally Green’s Half bad with Andy Serkis for Netflix.

HBO Max gave the project a serial engagement last summer. It’s designed to build on the film’s review of the Anatomy of Corruption in Gotham City, launching a new Batman universe across multiple platforms. Centered around the Gotham Police Department, the series will expand the world established in the film and further explore Gotham’s myriad of intricate characters.

Reeves in August said the series was a prequel to his Batman Year Two movie, with the show set in Batman Year One when a “masked vigilante … begins to destabilize the city.” The series will focus on the city’s corruption that “goes back several years” and is told through the perspective of a crooked cop, Reeves said in August.

He comes from Reeves’ 6th and Idaho in association with Warner Bros. Television. Reeves, Barton and The batman Producer Dylan Clark is executive producer, alongside Daniel Pipski and Adam Kassan of 6th & Idaho. Rafi Crohn of 6th & Idaho is co-executive producer. It is based on characters created for DC by Bob Kane with Bill Finger.

Barton is represented by ICM Partners, Grandview and Independent Talent Group.
