EPIX has made a straight to series order for Pennyworth, the story of Batman's butler, Alfred Pennyworth, and how he came to work for the Wayne family. While details on the series' plot remain quiet for the moment, we now have another Alfred on the DC side of things, and with fans able to embrace the concept of a multiverse, now we wait and see how Jack Bannon will step into the shoes of Batman's most trusted butler.
A young Alfred has been found.

Apparently, it wasn't their first encounter with the mammoth pig. 'Deputy Ponce and Deputy Berg found him and, due to previous calls, knew where he lived'.
Alfred Pennyworth is a boyishly handsome, cheerful, charming, clever young man from London. The murders of Thomas and his wife Martha during a street robbery are what spur young Bruce Wayne to take on the costumed identity of Batman. Honest, open-faced and witty; you'd never take him for an SAS killer. Alfred doesn't know how to reconcile the kind-hearted boy he used to be with the cold, calculated killer he was forced to become. Studios in the United Kingdom, will have 10 episodes and be under the watchful eye of Gotham producers and creators Bruno Heller and Danny Cannon, who will direct the series pilot. He's a man on the make, who doesn't know what to make of himself yet. "Confident and extremely disciplined, this young aristocrat meets an unlikely business partner in Alfred Pennyworth".
