Producers Bruno Heller and Danny Cannon speak about the concept of the series, explaining how the state of Gotham would lead to Bruce Wayne becoming Batman and the arrival of villains such as the Joker and the Penguin.
Ben McKenzie - who plays lead character Jim Gordon in the series - appears in the teaser, along with co-stars Donal Logue and Jada Pinkett Smith.
Cannon describes that the series will be "an old-fashioned cop show" with comic book elements.
The show was given a full series order by Fox on May 5.
The DC Comics series will focus on Gordon's early years on the Gotham City police force with unpredictable and gruff partner Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue).
Gotham will also explore the origins of classic Batman villains the Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor), the Riddler (Cory Michael Smith), Poison Ivy (Clare Foley) and Catwoman (Camren Bicondova).
