We’ve gushed about “Gotham” loads so imagine our shock and surprise and excitement all at the same time when we found out that the TV series will hit Malaysian screens in 10 days. That’s right! 10 days! Count ’em.
The much anticipated series, which hasn’t even started, was named Television Critics Association (TCA) most anticipated new TV series of the season. And for good reasons, we’re sure.
The origin story of these DC Comics super-villains and vigilantes reveals an entirely new chapter that’s never been told before – before Batman, there was Gotham. From executive producer and writer Bruno Heller (The Mentalist and Rome), this one-hour drama follows one cop’s rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering on the edge of evil and chronicles the genesis of one of the most popular superheroes of our time:
But that’s not the best part.
The crime drama has been fast-tracked to Asia explores the extraordinary good-versus-evil struggles in broken Gotham City; a city that’s the birthplace of the world’s most infamous criminals and legendary superheroes. Yes! Gotham, “2014’s Most Promising New Show” will hits Malaysian screens next Thursday, 25th September @ 9pm – just 3 days after US world premiere – exclusively on WarnerTV HD (HyppTV Channel 613) and also the HyppTV Everywhere mobile app.
But that’s still not the best part!
To celebrate the launch, Malaysia will also host “Gotham Villain Hunt”, a nod to the sinister escapades of The Penguin, one of the series’ eccentric criminal masterminds. How does it work? Well, Malaysians will be sent on a city-wide scavenger hunt to find hundreds of penguins. Scavengers need to find a limited-edition Gotham-branded penguin, which is about a foot tall with a swing tag and a unique code. Anyone who finds one can keep the penguin and enter a lucky draw on WarnerTV’s Facebook page to win a series of prizes ranging from exclusive branded premiums to high-end electronics.
Clues to locate the penguins will be released on WarnerTV’s Facebook page and HyppTV’s Facebook page. The campaign will use the hashtag #GothamOnWTV so fans are encouraged to take a photo with their penguin and post it on Facebook and Instagram with the hashtag!
The “Gotham Villain Hunt” will be carried out from 25th September – 2nd October.
Alright so, who’s excited?!
