The Scarecrow, The Riddler, and The Penguin have one thing in common. They can all be found on Fox's drama [Gotham](series:1127075). Gotham, the home to The Dark Knight, explores the lives of the Gotham residents before the emergence of Batman. While the idea seemed silly to some, Gotham has been steady in it's ratings as it continues to explore the Batman mythology. Now, Fox is hoping to recreate Gotham's success with a brand new show.
Fox has given a pilot order to an adaption of Lucifer, based off the the [DC](channel:932255) Comics imprint, Vertigo. Lucifer, a character from Neil Gaiman's The Sandman, will leave the depths of Hell, and help the Los Angeles Police Department capture and punish criminals.
Based on the new premise of the show, it appears that Fox wants the show to follow a procedural format, rather than a serialized one. Originally the series was going to see Lucifer abandon his throne in favor of running a piano bar in Los Angeles.
[Lucifer](series:2276654) will be executively produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman, and Len Wiseman, based on a screenplay written by Californication’s Tom Kapinos. Lucifer is expected to debut in the Fall 2015 season.
