GOTHAM: GOTHAM traces the rise of the great DC Comics Super-Villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told. From executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (“The Mentalist,” “Rome”) and starring Ben McKenzie (“Southland,” “The O.C.”), Jada Pinkett Smith (“Hawthorne,” “Collateral”) and Donal Logue (“Vikings,” “Sons of Anarchy”), GOTHAM follows one cop, destined for greatness, as he navigates a dangerously corrupt city teetering on the edge of evil, and chronicles the birth of one of the most popular super heroes of our time. GOTHAM will air Mondays (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) this fall on FOX.

That’s so Cory! Take it upon the enterprising young Cory Baxter of “That’s So Raven,” known in real life as actor Kyle Massey, to land a plum gig on the most-anticipated fall series, “Gotham.”

Massey has joined FOX’s “Batman” prequel as Macky, “a neglected/abused kid who lives on the streets of Gotham,” according to TVLine.

After “Raven” ended, the child star starred in a spinoff, “Cory in the House,” voiced Milo on Disney’s “Fish Hooks,” and appeared on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars.”

The cast already includes Ben McKenzie as the cop who will one day be Commissioner Gordon, along with Jada Pinkett Smith, Donal Logue and David Mazouz as future Caped Crusader Bruce Wayne.

Aside from Batman’s origin, the show will also follow the origin stories of iconic villains like Catwoman, Poison Ivy and The Penguin.

“Gotham” will premiere this fall on Mondays at 8pm, leading into the sophomore season of “Sleepy Hollow.
