Wow. The FOX network’s Batman prequel Gotham is shaping up to be the real deal in more ways than one with the lovely and talented Jada Pinkett Smith returning to network television playing mob boss Fish Mooney. 

A recently released trailer airing during Monday's 24 season premiere gave viewers a glance of Pinkett's character Mooney rocking a blend of what appears to be red highlights parting her black mane.  The hour-long drama recently received a commitment from FOX with the cast including Ben McKenzie as James Gordon, a Detective who eventually grows into the Commissioner Gordon that fans know and love. Robin Lory Taylor plays Oswald Cobblepot and Zabryna Guevara stars as Captain Essen. 

Jada’s character is described as a sadistic mob boss and nightclub owner with street smarts and a clairvoyant ability to read minds and intentions.  The only downer is Gotham won't hit the small screen until the fall.  Based on the life of a young Bruce Wayne in the aftermath immediately following the death of his parents, check out the trailer below for a first glimpse.
