I'm surprised I haven't seen a thread about this, although I may have missed it! The show will be syndicated and also air on the web. The episodes will be 30 minutes each, but no word on if it'll have a daily or weekly format.
New original episodes of the Emmy nominated webseries “Gotham” are coming to television and all digital media. Gotham is a serial drama based on characters originally created by two- time Emmy winner Martha Byrne and DGA/Emmy Award winner Alexandra Verner Roalsvig. Gotham is written by Byrne and Emmy nominated actress/director Lisa Brown. Brown and Byrne have worked in the world of daytime television for over two decades and created Gotham for the web in 2009 to celebrate the classic story telling of the serial drama and as a “thank you” to the fans for their continued support. Byrne, “Lisa and I are thrilled to be working with simplyMe to create new episodes of Gotham. We believe in the value of good story telling and simplyMe is giving us the opportunity to share our new journey with our fans.” The new episodes of Gotham will be distributed by simplyMe and produced by Gotham Productions LLC. SimplyMe CEO Krystol Cameron, "It brings us great pleasure to provide Gotham distribution over our cable and digital TV channels nationally. Gotham, once enjoyed by consumers on the web, will now go mainstream on and offline with new original episodes. It is a thrill for me and my staff to work with producer David Wenzel and seasoned veterans Martha Byrne and Lisa Brown.”
For me, I'm more shocked than anything. It's been four years since Gotham aired. I've always said Gotham is one of the few web soaps I'd LIKE to see move to tv because it had a good premise that would led itself to that. The production values weren't the best, but I could see what they were trying to achive and it felt like good soap. I hope with a bigger budget that these kinks are worked out. I hope it's a success! They certainly picked a good year to do this.
